This experience was amazing. Such a lovely day despite being a little overcast. Our driver, Nicolo, was always ready for us at each location even though we were a few minutes early each time. Lunch was lovely. We had time at each location to enjoy the views and do some shopping. Our guide at the Winery, Andrea, was charming, full of knowledge, and had some great stories about the history of the Winery and his family. The tour of the cellar was fantastic. We came with the intention of bringing some bottles of wine home with us. Upon understanding that they would travel by plane, the bottles were packed for the trip. We would do this again in a heartbeat.

The tour was great! Was 2 hours early before the meeting point time. Francesca was in the neighborhood and she suggested that she would pick me up and drop me at Citta Alta, an medieval part of Bergamo. There i could wander true the streets until the meeting point time. What was great! The tour itself was also great! Nice food, nice sparkling wines. At the vineyard we learned allot and also tasted the difference of three different sparkling wines. Really recommend this tour, the host Francesca is really an nice person!

Great experience! You get to visit a beautiful winery with a good tour, learn how to make pasta with a private chef(great character) and then you eat your pasta prepared by the chef. This is accompanied with good wine from the winery of course

Veldig fint området med masse god mat. Man kan lære seg mye om lokal vin og vinproduksjon. Sjåfør Francesca veldig hyggelig dame :) anbefaler ✌
