North of Venice lies the wine regions of Prosecco DOCG Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, Asolo Prosecco DOCG and Valdobbiadene di Cartizze DOCG. This is the land of Palladian villas and gently rolling hills covered in vines and noble manors. The darling village of Conegliano is full of 15th to 18th-century palaces, many of them with Venetian Gothic façades. Vineyards surround the town, mainly of the Glera grape, used to make the famed Italian bubbly. We have organized this luxury wine tasting excursion for those of you visiting Venice who would love a pampering wine experience. On your tour, you will travel by chauffeured Mercedes with your wine guide for the day. Visit gorgeous wineries such as Bisol, Nino Franco, Col Vetoraz, Bele Casel, Bortolomiol, Collavo. You can compare and contrast the many faces of Prosecco DOCG, from bruts to Rive crus, from rosé to rare and natural Col Fondo (on the lees), from extra dry to Cartizze crus. After a morning of wine tasting, you will enjoy lunch in a delightful spot with your guide. Specialties of this region include polenta, chiodino mushrooms, risottos flavored with wild herbs, delicate ‘Tortelli,’ and a range of cheeses like Morlacco, Casatella, Caciotta, and Pressato. Finally, before returning to Venice, enjoy an excursion to Treviso, a wonderful little town. Treviso has ancient canals, palaces with flower-lined balconies, and cute cafés. Upon your return to Venice, your guide will give you a special Cellar Tours gift.

Today is a food, wine, and culture extravaganza. Your private guide will meet you in your Venice Hotel, and then you will go to Piazzale Roma, where your private chauffeur will collect you.
Your first stop will be at one of the most important wineries in Valdobbiadene. Your host will greet you warmly, and you will enjoy a private tour of the prestigious wine estate. This is where the world-famous Prosecco Conegliano Valdobbiadene bubbly comes from, and you will taste various types of bubbly.
Next, you will enjoy a delightful rustic lunch in a charming trattoria where you will taste superb dishes such as polenta with funghi, gnocchi in a wild rabbit sauce, pheasant braised in a mint sauce, and homemade desserts- exquisite and refined.
After lunch, enjoy a digestive walk in the cute Cistercian Abbey of Santa Maria in Follina before visiting your second cellar of the day, a contrasting family-run estate. You will tour the estate and vineyards before tasting some excellent wines.
Before returning to Venice, you will stop to visit a Palladian Villa dating back to 1558, such as Villa Emo or Villa di Maser, and for a short while in Treviso, a lovely little place recently brought into the spotlight in the book “The Broker” by John Grisham.
