    A nice, educational opportunity for first-time visitors to Valpolicella region to explore. Includes visit to the vineyard, a tour of the cellars and a tasting in the courtyard of the estate. Nice views - easily accessible by car (if diving alone) and nicely paced. Plan for about 2-hours over-all including the tasting, although it's possible to linger longer. I had this tour on a Sunday at 10:30 am and left about 1:00 - 1:15 to get to my next appointment a short-time away. Tastings in Italy are all about the education and the enjoyment of the wines with small bites, as they show you how the wines go with various foods - this tasting affords the opportunity to enjoy some local cheese and salumi - don't try to cram in 3+ stops if doing a self-guided tour - two in a day is perfect for the full experience.

    beautiful spot and very friendly staff. views are incredible. tasting is very relaxed but limited to three wines. you get a good glass of each wine but it isn't clear in the description. experience lasted much longer than the 2 hours so don't plan anything for too soon afterwards but it is nice to not feel rushed.

    The grounds are absolutely stunning. We enjoyed the tour of the winery and learned a few things we had not known before from other tours. We do feel the amount of tastings were limited and we were a bit disappointed the guide left us on our own for long periods of time in between tastings. Overall, it was definitely worth visiting but we can honestly say it was not the best wine tour we have taken.
