What people are saying about Lake Garda

This was such a fun activity! Barbara welcomed us at the vineyard and she’d pulled together a cozy set up. We were 3 couples and one small family. She explained each wine and poured us very generous helpings. We tasted 7 wines in total. The olive oil and bread was delicious too! We ordered some wine to be shipped to Netherlands and within 24h got a notification that it’s been shipped. Love supporting local family owned vineyards, and this one is fantastic!

Valentina was amazing! We had a fantastic afternoon picking her brain. Highly highly recommend this tasting in a really unique setting and beautiful part of Italy. The food and wine are produced on the grounds, you couldn’t ask for more “local” cuisine.

Great experience! You get to visit a beautiful winery with a good tour, learn how to make pasta with a private chef(great character) and then you eat your pasta prepared by the chef. This is accompanied with good wine from the winery of course

An absolutely exceptional and well planned and paced experience, a very lovely and attentive host, plenty of interesting information and just some good vibes at a very authentic winery.

Our guide Barbara was fantastic! A great selection of wines! Lovely selection of meat and cheese to go with them! Highly recommend it’s a great tour!
