Sehr zu empfehlen! Kurzweilige und sehr interessante Tour

We spent a super nice and interesseting afternoon in Prosecco - Contovello with our guide Katrin. She explained her wine production very understundable and detailed and we tasted the handmade wine in her wonderful winery. What a great tour with our guide Katrin, a very nice group of people, great wine and food - just to recommend! Thanks again - we had a great time :) :) :)

PERFECT

This tour was perfect. Nothing I write will fully express how gracious and entertaining our "guide" (KATRIN) was. Honestly - I felt like she was our best friend after the excursion. The wine and the food was all local and to die for! I can't emphasize how much room I forced my stomach to make because I wanted to keep eating. What I learned about Prosecco and the origin of the drink was interesting and unique. The history of Slovenia and Trieste was also fascinating. We loved the vineyard we spent our time in. The hike and views were beautiful and it was such a fun and unique experience. We left so enchanted with Katrin and Prosecco (the town and drink).
