We got a chance to see where the wine is stored and views of the vineyard, plus the guide was quite informative. Then we got to try many different wines with information about each. It's the only wine tasting tour I've done, so I can't compare but I really enjoyed it!

This is one of the best wine tastings we have attended. The wines were delicious and very reasonably priced. The facility was clean and decorated in vintage equipment and pictures. Will definitely be purchasing the wine in the US.

A fantastic day out from Venice! Highly recommended!! After reading previous reviews I was concerned about not finding the pick up point at the Plaza Roma, however it is extremely easy to locate - just behind and to the right of the public toilets. You can see the Hotel Olympia from the pick up point. The drive out to the Paladin winery was very comfortable in an air conditioned mini bus. The tour itself was great, our guide showed us around the winery and was very knowledgeable on the process of wine making (although we didn't actually see nay of the wine making process). We then sampled 11 different wines, including prosecco, a liquor, and a sparkling red. We were given varieties of salami and 'drunk' cheese and crackers to have with our wine. The tasting was the highlight of the tour! We bought 2 bottles at a very reasonable price, which we enjoyed back at our hotel in Venice! The only negative comment about the tour would be that we didn't actually get to go out onto the vineyard itself, or see the wine making process. It would have been great if we could have picked some grapes, or had some pictures taken in the vineyard and around the grounds. Also our tour was only for 4 hours, we spent and hour or so travelling each way to the winery, then 2hrs at the winery itself. I would still recommend this tour to anyone who has time to do it whilst in Venice! We thoroughly enjoyed it!

We enjoyed the lovely Paladin Winery/vineyard. Our driver was excellent and was able to tell us a bit about the area. The Paladin representative showed us through the winery from making the wines, to aging them. Our wine tasting was a highlight of the tour with grissini, cheese and thinly slice sausage to cleanse the palate

The trip was great! On time, courteous and a very knowledgeable guide. Clean vehicle and safe driving. The winery itself was wonderfully maintained and culturally unique and the wine tasting presentation was personalized. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was one of the best bits of our holiday. We turned up to Pizzale a Roma to find it was just me and my husband doing the tour, fab! Our driver was a lovely man who ended up taking us on the tour of the vineyard and bringing us the wine to taste. It was really informative and we ended up getting a bit squiffy! We got given some salami and 'drunk' cheese (which was amazing) to have with our wine. We ended up buying 4 bottles of wine to bring home. An excellent day, you must do it.

A really good day out from Venice. The vineyard was beautiful, the wines were wonderful and our guide was very enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. As it was such a small group, we had one-to-one attention and plenty of time to ask questions.
The only problem we had was finding the pick up point to start with as the directions were not clear. If it had just said 'Behind the taxi rank' we would have found it immediately, but 'left side of the square' wasn't too easy. Apart from that - fantastic day! Thank you!

The tour comprised transportation to/from one winery. We were given a thorough tour of the winery, and we tasted many perhaps 10? different wines. Snacks were provided e.g. salami and cheese for the non-vegetarians, and excellent vegetables for the vegetarians. We bought 6 bottles of wine to ship home.

I enjoyed the Veneto Small-Group Wine Tasting Tour. Our driver told us about the beautiful country sides we drove through to get to the vineyard. The guide, at the vineyard, was very knowledgeable on the process of the vineyard's wine process. Our group (four people) tasted seven types of wine and had cheese, meat and crackers to go along with the tasting. I would recommend this tour.

We enjoyed the experience very much. The winery tour was great. The tastings were quite good; especially the prosecco. We actually purchased and had some shipped home. It was a nice time shared with another couple.

The Paladin Winery was tremendous! Very informative tour, friendly staff and excellent tastings. I did have 2 issues with this trip. The first was finding the transportation near the Plaza Roma. We searched and searched yet couldn't find the area described on our voucher. After three telephone calls we finally found our driver who told us that they had been trying for a year to get the pick up location description updated since the old location no longer exists. Secondly although there were only four of us on the trip I understood that we would have an "english speaking tour", we DID however the other two people on our tour spoke French only, which meant that the tour guide explained is two different times and I feel that we may have lost some interesting points due to the dual language issue. Overall the winery, driver and tour guide were amazing.

This was a great tour. There was myself and 2 others. We drove 1 hour out of Venice and spent about 2 hours at the one winery. We were shown through the winery, however, not the actual making process. Then we had tastings of several wines and a excellent assortment of meats, cheeses and bread while tasting.
Recommend as it was relaxing and not too long.

Winery tour and tasting was nice. The trip allowed for one winery and each of the wines produced by the winery was tasted. It would have been nice to visit a couple of winerys to get additional perspective on the regions wine, but this was a nice lo-key affair.

The winery we visited, Ornella Molon is a beautiful estate and we tasted some excellent wine. The wines were very resonably priced, as were other items. Excellent experience!

Our tour guide, Enrico, was very nice. It would have been helpful if he were more knowedgeable about the wines.

Our wine tour was amazing! The only negative comment I have would be that the actual tour of the winery and the grounds was not as in depth as I would have liked. The wine tasting portion was excellent and the guide was very knowledgeable.

A great way to do something more when in Venice - visit one of the vineyards close by. With a small group as this it also gives a closer experience to the wines and the people in the group. Clearly recommended.

This was an odd wine tasting tour. We only went to one winery where we basically just stood and drank a lot of wine. There wasn't much discussion about the wines, but they were generous with their pours. Then, some people bought a bunch of wine, which I guess was the expected result of the tour. Our driver was very pleasant though.
