I can not say enough amazing things about our winery tour with Visit Prosecco Italy!
I found Jo’s website while Googling the Prosecco region and was blown away by the depth of knowledge she possesses about the region and her desire to share it with others. I reached out a day or two before our desired tour date which I knew was cutting it a bit close, but Jo responded fairly quickly and connected me with one of her trusted drivers. The prices were fair, transparent, and agreed upon upfront. After a few messages with the driver about the length of our tour/with or without a lunch stop… the rest was completely taken care of and I was immediately at ease. Alessio explained exactly which train to take and what stop to meet him. He picked us up right on time and greeted us with water, then we were off to our first winery. Along the drive, Alessio gave us a brief history of the area and explained the types of wineries we would be visiting. Stop 1 was a small family winery that gave us an in-depth history of Prosecco, the grapes, the soil, and the way nature and nurture affect the process. We LOVED the wine so much we bought 3 bottles. We then stopped at the second winery and then lunch. Lunch was a traditional Italian meal of mozzarella, tomatoes, meat, and wine. The surrounding area was so beautiful and we left full and happy.
When we arrived at the last winery Alessio informed us that we had about 30 minutes before our tasting would start and that we should feel free to roam the grounds a bit. The winery itself was beautiful but the view was STUNNING. We wandered up a trellised stairway to a semi-secluded spot with incredible views overlooking the most elite vineyard in the Valdobbiadene region. My partner saw this as the perfect spot to get down on one knee and propose… and she was right. It couldn’t have been a more magical place. We completed our tour with huge smiles on our faces (partially because of the engagement and partially because of the delicious Prosecco/beautiful day).
Huge thank you to Jo + Alessio + all of the wineries. It was surely a day we will never forget.
