We’d be delighted to arrange a guided trip (numbers permitting) to allow you to taste the World-famous wines such as Amarone, Recioto, Valpolicella Ripasso and Valpolicella Classico DOCG along with a stop at one of the many typical restaurants in the area so that you can also taste the typical food such as Polenta, Gnocchi, Pasta e Fagioli or Risotto Tastasal which is a prized local dish made from a rice and a minced spiced sausage.

Great food and wine apart, there are other sites you should not miss such as a visit to the The Museum of Paleontology and Prehistory of Sant’Anna d’Alfaedo which includes the longest shark fossil found in Europe, measuring 5.5 meters.
