I cannot say enough about how great this activity was, from start to finish! Our meeting with our driver, Paolo, was straightforward and easy (it's also helpful if you have the messaging app WhatsApp installed on your phone already), the drive was pleasant and nice (Paolo is SO nice and filled with great bits of information on the drive), and then our arrival to the vineyard... Fantastic! As soon as we arrived, the owner, Emmanuel, greeted us & launched right in to a really interesting tour of the vineyard and winery, explaining how they make their wine as well as the classification and certification process in the region/country. After a really thorough, interesting tour, we were led in to the lovely tasting room, where we tried 4 of their proseccos- which were incredible! Emmanuel also prepared a tasting plate of meats, cheeses and bread for us (some of which he makes himself). Everything was just fantastic- leisurely, fun, enjoyable, low pressure. There were only 4 of us (apparently the max for this trip) and we all had a really great time. We met others who did other prosecco tours & this absolutely seemed to top the experiences of the others. Definitely- DO THIS. Among our 4, I was the only one who really loved bubbles prior, but everyone really, really enjoyed it & I think has been converted to sparkling wine lovers!
Our Prosecco Country wine tour was amazing!
The driver was prompt, very courteous, calm/skilled driver, and great English! He was great with communication and helping us figure out where to meet him as we had no idea where things were. He is very knowledgeable about the area and about Prosecco so it made the drive as entertaining as it was beautiful.
The vineyard was absolutely picture-perfect. I do not usually take many photos but the vineyard and the entire area looked like something out of a book or magazine so I continuously took pictures.
The Prosecco itself was fantastic and being able to buy some and have it shipped to the States was a huge plus. The vineyard owner also spoke great English and was very friendly and took plenty of time showing us the vineyard and operations and never made us feel rushed or like we were intruding (nor ever made us feel like we were asking dumb questions!).
I was on the fence about taking a day trip away from Venice because there was already so much to see in this beautiful city and our time was limited, but I am so glad I did! This day trip definitely stands out as a highlight. If you like wine, sparkling wine, Prosecco, etc. then book this tour. You will be glad you did.
