North of Venice lies the wine region of Prosecco DOC di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene. This is the land of Palladian villas and gentle rolling hills covered in vines and noble manors. The darling village of Conigliano is full of 15th to 18th century palaces, many of them with Venetian Gothic façades. Vineyards surround the town, mainly of the Prosecco 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 and you will have your own wine guide for the day. Visit gorgeous wineries such as Bisol and Villa Sandi in Crocetta del Montello, a spectacular architectural masterpiece. You can compare and contrast the many faces of Prosecco, from bruts to Pinot Neros and even grappas made from Prosecco. 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.
