Welcome to the Prosecco Valley!
After meeting your guide and fellow wine enthusiasts in Piazzale Roma in Venice, you'll board a comfortable minivan and embark on a scenic journey into the Prosecco Valley. As you travel, your guide will outline the day ahead and share fascinating insights about the region's renowned wines and the charming valley you're about to explore. Within an hour, find yourself amidst the rolling green hills and lush vineyards that define the renowned Prosecco Valley.
Sip Prosecco at a Traditional Winery
Your first destination is a traditional winery. Here, the winemakers themselves will introduce you to their family's time-honored methods. You'll have the opportunity to stroll through the lush vineyards, learn about the intricate winemaking process, and indulge in your first tasting session. Plus, to top off the tasting, you'll be treated to a light lunch that perfectly complements your wine.
Before leaving, delight in the opportunity to capture photos of the picturesque hills and lush vineyards. The natural beauty of this UNESCO-listed site promises the perfect backdrop for snapshots that will no doubt be highlights of your time in Italy.
Dive Deeper into Prosecco’s Sparkling Story
Your superb day out then continues to the second winery. Here, you’ll discover the secrets of the Charmat method, a distinct technique for crafting Prosecco. The Charmat method involves a secondary fermentation in pressurized tanks, allowing the wine to capture its signature effervescence, floral aromas, and fruity notes, resulting in the delightful sparkle that Prosecco is known for.
You’ll also have the opportunity to tour the cellar, steel vats, and vineyard before delving into the second wine-tasting session.
Feeling giddy from the delicious Prosecco and rejuvenated from the serene landscapes, it's time to make the leisurely journey back to Venice. You can expect to arrive around 4:00pm, allowing plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your evening in Venice.
