Tour Overview Tour Overview

Your Wine Tour of Lake Garda begins in Venice
You will meet your driver directly in Venice near the Tronchetto car park. Driving towards Verona, you will enjoy the views of Veneto plains and distant Valpolicella wine hills and vineyards, with our driver-tour escort introducing you to the history of the region. Get ready: your wine tasting tour of Lake Garda is about to begin!

Sirmione: the First Stop of the Lake Garda Wine Tour
Begin your journey in Sirmione, a renowned holiday resort and medical treatment center with a rich history dating back to Roman times. Explore its famous Roman Villa, often referred to as the Grottoes of Catullus, along with other historic patrician houses. Don't miss the impressive "Rocca Scaligera" castle, built by the Scaligeri warlords of Verona, who once ruled much of modern-day Veneto before the Venetian conquest of the mainland.

During this segment of our Valpolicella and Lake Garda wine tour, you'll experience a harmonious blend of art and nature. The landscape surrounding Lake Garda ranges from the southern tip, which extends to the plains of Veneto, to the gentle, rolling hills of the Bardolino wine region. Enjoy breathtaking views of Italy's largest lake during our panoramic stops included in this Lake Garda wine tour.

Our Private Wine Tours of Lake Garda continue in the Valpolicella Wine Region
In the afternoon we'll visit a celebrated wine estate in the Valpolicella wine region, for an in-depth tour of the winery to thoroughly understand the unique methods used to produce the famous Amarone red wine, that has been produced in this area since Roman times.

Until recently, the primary wine of this region was Recioto, a sweet red wine favored by Veronese locals in times when sugar and sweets were scarce. Amarone is often dubbed the "failed Recioto" because its fermentation process halts to retain sugar, imparting sweetness. Indulge in a comprehensive wine tasting of the estate's signature wines and enjoy a scenic drive through the vine-covered hills before returning to Venice. After this experience, you'll eagerly anticipate joining more wine tasting tours of Lake Garda!
