    Superb wine tasting in a wonderful winery

    My wife and I were on holiday in Verona when we booked this your. We are both very passionate about good wine and we knew about the Valpolicella region, just hadn't had the chance to visit it yet. I must say I was quite surprised by how perfect everything was during this tour. Silvia from Cantine Salvaterra was very preparared, the showed us the beautiful vineyards and explained everything about their wines. The guided tasting was amazing, this is how every wine should taste! Also the local products we had the chance to taste together with the wines (like the "grana padano", delicious pieces of salami and the "grissini") were really good. We'd definitely book another activity with Faberest on our next trip to Italy, their team is great! Well done
