Valpolicella is one of the most important wine regions in Italy and home to the famed Amarone wines. Located just northwest of the historic city of Verona and east of Lake Garda. Fine wine has been produced here since Roman times and indeed the name is of ancient origin- Valpolicella comes from “Vallis Polis Cellae” which means “valley of many cellars”.
This one-day Amarone Wine Tour of the Valpolicella vineyards begins in Venice. The tour is with a professional Sommelier and takes in two high-end small estates. You will visit the cellars and vineyards and learn about the fascinating heavy work intensive production of the Amarone wines, as well as the sweeter Reciotos. You will have also the chance to taste an Italian lunch. This is a fantastic full day wine tour for guests looking for authentic wine experience and an introduction to some of the best Amarone wines in the Valpolicella.
