Our host Francesca was fantastic! She explained the whole of the process to us on the way up (around 50mins) then we stopped at a gorgeous family run vineyard, met with the son who takes care of the vines. He explained to us their growing, cutting and harvesting methods - and was so patient with all our questions! We then had such a generous feast of their local home grown products including salami from their own pigs. With this we tried three of the vineyards own Proseccos - each with its own character and technique. After this we travelled to see a beautiful water mill for a quick photo stop before heading on to see the next - much larger producer. Here we got to see the large scale production of their Prosecco, including their process from grape to bottle. Seeing the bottling machine in action was in of itself fascinating. After the factory tour we again were able to stop for three more tastings - each tasting very different! I would highly recommend this tour.
We absolutely loved this tour. The guide (Stefano) was great! We visited 2 wineries and learnt a lot about the prosecco process. The first venue included a "light" lunch, which was sooooo tasty and so much more than I expected. We met a fantastic group of people and had a great time.
Francesca, our guide, was fantastic and very knowledgeable about Proseco and the region that it derives from. The countryside was absolutely beautiful and the Vineyards we visited produced some superb products. Highly recommend this tour even if you're not the biggest wine drinker.
Really nice place to visit,nice people,very informative and we will not miss out the opportunity of repeating the trip if we came back to the area.
Fantastic day. Lovely way to see the prosecco hills and learn about the area. Met lovely people. Highly recommend this day trip.
