First of all, wow: what a beautiful place! Grapes for days as long as the eyes can see! I don't know that much about wine but they brought out 7-8 bottles for us to taste. They explained every bottle and if you wanted to buy one, you could just step into the shop afterwards. They let us taste the grapes still hanging on the tree, its a must-try-kind-of-moment! Overall, the wine, the location, the kind guide and the food; perfect!

We had so much fun and met lovely people. Our guide Matteo was super nice and supportive. Especially with one participant who was vegetarian and didn’t like some of the food. Food was amazing and showed some interesting new tastes

Barbara was an excellent host. All the wines were delicious as were the nibbles. Lovely setting and friendly cat
