Incredible experience in a stunning setting. It is not made clear on the website on how to get to the vineyard, however if you call ahead you will be able to organise Jacopo to pick you up from Verona and take you back. Alternatively a taxi is €35 to €40 from Verona train station. The tour and light lunch lasted approximately 3.5 hours. The wine samples are generous and the lunch provided included bread, homemade olive oil, salami, cheese, homemade cherry chutney (which is delicious!) and almond biscuits to compliment the wine. If you don't know too much about wine (we didn't) you will leave well informed with a keenness to learn more! Fantastic experience. I couldn't recommend it more.
The family that lived there were extremely heart warming and welcoming when we got there. We were greeted with coffee as soon as we arrived. The tour guide was so friendly and his English was fantastic. We were taught about the local area and how they grow and produce their different wines. After, we were served local cheese, meats and bread which were probably the best we’ve had since our arrival in Italy. We had three glasses of wine each and they were fantastic! Paired with a beautiful biscuit/dessert. They were in no hurry to get rid of us and took so much time and patience with everyone’s queries and comments. I would highly recommend doing this if you are in the area!
My husband and I signed up for this class, as we love gelato and were excited to learn how to make it. What we got was so much more - instruction by the talented, passionate and enigmatic Alex, the opportunity to make not just gelato, but tiramisu and peach sorbet as well. Every item we made was delicious and created with care. Alex truly wanted us to be able to recreate the desserts at home, which was great. The kitchen space was beautiful and perfect for this activity. It was very much a hands-on experience, and we had a chance to mingle with the other participants as well. The cost was more than reasonable! An unforgettable experience, highly recommended!
I was lucky taking gelato making class, my husband joined too. It was memorable experiences, full of fun and ice-cream. I truly enjoyed it and I'm looking forward taking another classes in the future. Chef Christina was an amazing, she shared her knowledge and answered all questions I had, I can't thank you her enough. My next plant will be online classes with chef Christina : ) Best, Fatimah & Michael
This is a fantastic way to spend a few hours. We were collected from our hotel by Jacopo and driven to the Vineyard, lots of information, lovely wine tasting with lunch. Jacopo and his family are really welcoming, we were part of a small group which made it really personal. Get booking you will not be disappointed. The wine is fantastic.
