Amarone Experience

Written By Admin


Join the Venice Day Trips experts on this special day trip of small prestigious vineyards that produce Amarone and the other quality Valpolicella wines.  Sample the genuine local cuisine, and enjoy the atmosphere and the scenic views of this wine area located just one hour and a half from Venice.

The Valpolicella is a valley located between Lake Garda and Verona, famous for its historical wines. It seems that the name Valpolicella itself comes from ancient Greek and means valley of  the  many  cellars.  Today  the  most  important  wines  produced  there  are  Amarone  and Recioto. The landscape is breathtaking with its classical villas surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and orchards.

The  excursion  starts  with  a  visit  to  a  typical cantina of this area set in a building from the XV century. We  arrive from the small scenic road winding  through  the  vineyards.  Here,  weather permitting, we will tour the  vineyards with the owner that will talk to us about the area’s grape growing techniques and, after a brief description of the wines winemaking process, we will  start with  the  wine  tastings  of  the  Valpolicella’s classic wines: Valpolicella, Ripasso della Valpolicella, Amarone and Recioto. The wines will be paired with small tastes of local “salumi” and cheese. Your wine tasting will be led by the vineyard owner along with your Guide, who is a sommelier and master cheese taster.

Next we will take a scenic drive as we head to a typical restaurant of the area, where we will have a light lunch with tradional dishes and wine.

After lunch we will visit another cantina, along with the traditional building where the grapes for the Amarone  and Recioto are withered before the vinification. After a short visit to the ancient (XVII century) mill, we will have the second wine tasting of the same famous wines of this area, again, paired with some cheese and salumi of this area. Together with your guide you  will  discuss  the  differences  and  similarities  of  the  wines  from  these  two  different producers.
