The wines, the winemakers and the terroir

Our offer includes a private wine sampling session led by one of our expert wine & food tour guides. The guide will present all wines you want to taste in much detail so you can appreciate them at their best. The guide will also give you plenty of information on the family of winemakers behind the wines, namely a dinasty of local counts with centuries of history in the agricultural production in the region. During the conference call the guide will also show you some great pictures of the property and the wine cellar. It will be a very interesting introduction to the local winemaking traditions as well as to the regional history, for you to fully understand how wines result from the whole terroir they represent.

We will study the best timing according to your time zone. As we will be airing from Italy (Central European Time, CET +1), it is important that the timing for the wine sampling is agreed on. We will choose the best timing also considering that each session takes 90 minutes.

If you want to share this experience with other people of your circle, we give you the possibility to share our private guided wine sampling session with your family, relatives or friends. You can invite them over during the guided sampling session or you can sign up together with others in your party through other connected devices, located in any place.
