Fairly short info and a tour with a good guide. Possibly you would have been given the opportunity to ask some questions, it was not opened for that. The tasting was easy and nice with very good wines + snacks in an incredibly nice environment. (The house mascot cat that followed us around was the icing on the cake). Fitted us perfectly!

Tried 5 different amazing wines and learned a lot about the process of wine making and the history behind Pastini’s family tradition. Will hopefully be back someday

beautiful route through the vineyards, production and packaging, excellent wine tasting, I will definitely return when the underground cellar is ready
