Great tour to a small vineyard with a fantastic view of the Gulf of Trieste Lots of information about local specialties, including the gastronomy in the villages around Prosecco After a short stretch on the Alps-Adriatic Trail, we reached the lovingly designed vineyard and tried organically produced ones Local white and red wine as the sun slowly sets And that was wonderfully explained and moderated by the landlady Kathrin The only drawback: It was a nice wine evening with Prosecco - but not with Prosecco - if you want to try Prosecco and maybe take a few particularly tasty bottles with you, should plan something else But don't miss Kathrin's Prosecco Tour!

Damien was a really great guide. He told us a lot about Trieste, its history, its monuments. He was extremely available and satisfied all our requests and curiosities. With great availability he devoted even more time to us than expected. Recommended.

A beautiful experience. Katrin involves and fascinates a trained and expert sommelier, who transmits love and passion for her work. It will guide you on a journey made of wine history and local culture, among enchanting landscapes. Recommended
