We will take you in a voyage discovering some of the best wines of the Lake Garda area. You will visit the wineyards and cellars with the winemakers, who will tell you about their land and their traditions and the phases of wine production from grapes to bottles. After the visit you will enjoy some of their wines accompanied by tastings of local products. To let you taste good glasses of wine in complete safety, we offer a shuttle service.
