    Taste of Northern Italy: Food & Wine in Valpolicella

Taste of Northern Italy: Food & Wine in Valpolicella

  • City: Valpolicella
  • Duration: Approximately 9 hours

Overview

Discover the beauty and the flavors found in the Valpolicella wine country of the Veneto region on this full day guided tour. You'll take the most scenic backroads to two different wineries and to a characteristic restaurant and, along the way, your tour guide will illuminate all the special features of this beautiful region. Sample regional cuisine and learn just how these wineries produce world-class wines with subtle yet significant differences.

Meander through the rolling hills of the Veneto to reach the first vineyard, Novaia. You will tour the estate's tree-shaded grounds and learn about the conditions needed to produce the grapes used in their special wines. A wine tasting with the experts will follow.

Lunch at Ristorante Al Covolo comes next. Specializing in homemade pastas and sweets, as well as meats slow-cooked in wine, Al Covolo is a fine example of the local traditions prevalent in the Valpolicella region. They also have an extensive enoteca with a large variety of wines for sale.

A pleasant drive through the undulating hills takes you to the second vineyard, Azienda Agricola Coali. Here you will gain a deeper understanding of the subtle differences in production techniques that give these wines their unique flavors. Enjoy a full wine tasting, as well as a tour of the grounds.

Final stop of the day will be the 13th century church of San Giorgio; then it's back to Venice after a fun-filled day of touring and tasting the finest wines and foods of the Vapolicella region.
