The winetasting was really nice and the host really could answer us all the questions. Because I already did some winetasting i was a little disappointed that we couldn’t see how they prepare the wine

FRANCHINI was absolutely perfect. Fantastic amarone and a true winery. We were looking for the “story” behind the heart of the wine and they certainly delivered. One of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Italy. We will be purchasing our wine from Franchini for years to come. Thank you!

We were very excited to do this trip after reading everyone’s reviews and we researched it a great deal. We got a taxi to the beautiful spot in the mountains where the views were spectacular. We had a warm welcome from a lady initially. But sadly she was not the one doing our tour. It was just the two of us, the tour lasted half an hour. We found the guide abrasive and she struggled a bit with her English. It felt very much like she didn’t want to be there. We also booked the cheese and ham platters which arrived after the second glass of wine. Having done other wine tasting we found it odd to be using just one glass to taste 6 different wines. She didn’t show us anything to buy. We felt rushed to finish as she took the liberty to order a taxi for us before we had even finished our last tasting of wine. There was no option to stay for another glass, buy anything or browse. Considering we spent over €100 on the experience, plus over €85 on taxis from Verona and back, we feel very disappointed with this experience which we didn’t feel was value for money or particularly enjoyable.

A wonderful venue, fabulous wines and a very knowledgeable wine expert to guide us through the tasting. Extremely enjoyable

Great tour. Good late afternoon start time. Small Vinyard in hills with great view. The amarone for the tasting was nicely aged rather than just a new bottle.

Brilliant experience…. Introduced us to a new world of special wines. Great presentation and tour and down to earth but delicious wine and food. Really helpful in getting us a taxi. Can’t recommend highly enough
