Nice, quite standard wine tasting, including tour in the cellar and tasting (Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone). Easy access from Verona also by bus.

Amazing place with rich history. Excellent wine selection. The hosts were very polite and well prepared in their presentation of the place, the wine production and the characteristics of each one of the wines during the wine tasting.

Very nice house and garden, we've learned lots of interesting information about the production of wines from our guide Rebecca, and finally got to taste four different high quality wines. Sure enough, we bought some bottles to enjoy them at home.

Loved everything about this visit! Friendly, knowledgeable guides, a tour which is interesting and not too long, with a generous tasting of four quality wines for only 24 euro! There is a premium option.. but we don't see how it could be better. The presentation and tasting notes are great! (English is spoken very fluently.. and the presentation is supported by video..) The main room at the Villa is exquisitely decorated.. the gardens are tranquil and beautiful.. The whole experience breathtaking!

We booked the tour & wine tasting through a website that charged $38 per person expecting terrific wines. The tour was interesting and the guide was very good and knowledgeable, but of the four wines we were given, three are at best average and the Amarone was the only good wine. At the end, we checked the prices per bottle and the Amarone is more than 75 Euro per bottle. For that price, you can get much better wines.
