A taste of Valpolicella
Excursion in Valpolicella
Enjoy two different wine tastings
Departure by private van at 10 a.m. from the agency’s headquarters.
After about a 30 minute drive through the Valpolicella we reach the towns of Pedemonte, Negrar and Marano where we stop for our first wine tasting and we can try local wines, accompanied by cold cuts and local cheeses.
We continue our trip, after a short drive, at nearby San Giorgio Ingannapoltron, situated on the outlying hills above the town of Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella. We visit the exquisite Romanesque church, built in the Vlll century on pre-existing Roman ruins, houses important XlV century frescoes which have been recently restored. There are interesting archeological excavations in the church grounds and a superb cloister with a perfectly preserved antique well in the courtyard. From the village there is a breathtaking view of Lake Garda.
Continuing our route through the Valpolicella, we pass by the historic villa, Palazzo della Torre at Fumane and stop for our second tasting.
At both wineries the cellars can be visited by request.
Return is scheduled for 2 pm.
