Full description
If you love good wine and its tradition, you must have heard of Franciacorta before. But are you sure you really know about its history, what makes it unique, and the secrets of the different varieties of this majestic wine? Through this tour, you'll have the chance to discover a unique area surrounded by green hills quite close to Lake Iseo by walking in the vineyards where the history of Franciacorta began. You'll depart from Milan with a private car transfer and, after approximately 1 hour, you will arrive at the winery and start your tour by discovering the vineyards, their history and tradition, as well as the particular cultivation techniques for the Franciacorta grapes.  From the vineyards, you'll then be led to the winery to explore the wine cellar and learn about the typical production methods which characterise this unique wine.

The experience was excellent! The only problem was meeting our driver, in fact he is not allowed to wait for you in the taxi area, as indicated in the docs, we received! He waited at the gallia hotel, so there was s bit of a hiccup to get in touch with him, as the phone was picked up by his manager, not the driver, goodness gracious!!!! In the end we found him, after couple calls. The driver himself was wonderful, so understanding and reserved, we appreciated this, indeed!!!
