Your experienceJoin this relaxing food and wine tour, meet the local expert guide in Bardolino and start exploring the hilly white wine region of Custoza. This area boasts luxuriant vineyards and olive trees. Stop at the first selected winery and meet the winemaker. You’ll discover the secrets of the production in a very authentic place. Hear about the traditions and taste the delicious white wine, only produced in this wine region. After the first stop, where you’ll have the chance of having a complete wine tasting session paired with the local cheese, you’ll be ready for a very local experience. Not far from Lake Garda there is a magic place where dozens of ladies produce every day handmade fresh pasta, the “Tortellini di Valeggio''. This is a local and artisanal production, famous all around the North of Italy for its quality. Here a tasting lunch, including the famous tortellini, is waiting for you! After lunch you’ll visit a special place, a “borgo” that won the nomination for one of the most beautiful villages in Italy (“borghi più belli d’Italia"). This is Borghetto sul Mincio, a fairytale place with mills and ancient buildings. Here, there’s nothing better than strolling through the tiny lanes with a delicious gelato. After this refreshing walk you’ll be ready to enter the Lugana wine region. Another beautiful surprise: this pristine place is the heart of an incredible white wine production that takes its unique characteristics from the special soil. Meet the local producer for the second wine stop of this eno-gastronomic journey and discover the flavors of this unique wine production during a complete tasting session before going back to Bardolino.

Hello! My name is Alessandro, and I'm a wine lover for a long time. I live in Valpolicella, the land of Amarone, and I've been a tour leader for more than 10 years in the wine tourism. I'm so curious and last years I started exploring more other wine region in the north of Italy, with my friends and colleagues Francesca, Andrea and Elisabeth, such as Prosecco hills, Piedmont and Langhe. I'm looking forward to take you around these beautiful wine regions as soon as possible.
My name is Andrea, I am 28 and I love to travel. I was born in Verona, the city I love, but at the end my degree in foreign languages my only desire was to travel! My first real travel has been in Australia, a beautiful Country that I explored with my van for a year. I love nature, and Australia has given me breathtaking landscapes. Right after I spent many months in Southeast Asia, among a thousand adventures on foot, by motorbike or hitchhiking. In Spring and Summer I love to show people the beauty of my country, and in Winter I fly away to follow the sun and admire this wonderful world.
