Wine tours in the best Veneto's wineries
It is called “enoturismo” (wine tourism), a word derived from the Greek term “oinos” (wine) and the French term “tour” (tour, trip). It is not a new trend, but a new way to travel that focuses on wine. Also called wine tours, organized visits to cellars and wineries are very popular in Italy, a country where wine has been produced and appreciated for centuries. Veneto, one of the major regions, offers a wide and interesting variety of wine tours: for beginners and experienced sommeliers as well as for groups of friends or couples looking for a different kind of entertainment. So where can you start the tasting of a good glass?
The offers focus on the geographical area that goes from Valpolicella to Valdobbiadene, with the exception of the Euganean Hills, known for the cultivation of wine grapes as well as table grapes.
Usually wine tasting events take place throughout the year, and it is possible to participate simply by emailing a request directly to the wineries. The most organized wineries offer a full tour of the facility, with wine tastings paired with local products (such as cheese). “Cantine Aperte” (open cellars), an event that involves dozens of producers from Veneto, is also an alternative to wine tours.
