We decided to take this tour despite the lack of reviews and met our young guide, Nicolò, near the M5 metro station of Bignami. The comfortable Mercedes minivan was exclusively for us. Nicolò, a local, provided information during our hour-long drive to the Franciacorta area. Our first stop was Ronco Calino Winery, where our guide, Serena, shared fascinating details about the terroir, history, and philosophy of the winery. We toured the cellars, tasted two sparkling wines, and took photos in the vineyard. For lunch, we went to Trattoria del Muliner in Clusane on Lake Iseo’s shore, enjoying simple Italian cuisine with a three-course meal and a glass of Franciacorta. Highlights included smoked trout tartar and sliced beef with spices. After exploring the lake and town, we visited Berlucchi, the most important producer of Franciacorta. The tour was more corporate, but we enjoyed tasting three sparkling wines and seeing a bottle from the first vintage of Franciacorta.

This tour is extremely worthwhile. Our guide Nicolò’ was experienced and very knowledgeable. Bergamo is a quaint little town (citta’ alta) we had plenty of time to walk the streets without hassle. The lunch was superb, a three corse meal in a town along Lago d’ Iseo finally the winery tour was so interesting and the wine tasting the cherry on top. This tour is well worth doing such an enjoyable day

Francheska was so accomodating and even dropped us off on the way home. The tour was excellent. It is very relaxing for our age group. Lunch is good. Love the wine we even bought few bottles. Overall good value for money.

We had a very enjoyable day with congenial folk all around.

The experience was absolutely perfect! Highly recommended!
