Discover a corner of countryside near lake Como


Between Lake Como and the southern Lombardy, there is a beautiful corner of countryside where green nature is protagonist. Man's works, such as agriculture, wine production and hospitality respect nature and its cycle: here everything seems to be quiet, far away from everyday frenzy.

We will start our tour visiting a small winemaker company: their wine production is strictly linked to their area. In their "agriturismo" we will have the opportunity to do a wine tasting: local products or dishes will be matched to different kinds of wine. After we will walk through its vineyards and we will see its cellars… a unique experience!

Itinerary

- pick up at your accomodation/our meeting point in the morning at 10 a. m.
- arrival at the winemaker "agriturismo" at around 11. 30 a. m. - 12 (it depends from which location we start our tour)
- wine and food tasting
- visit to their vineysrds and cellar
- with our private vehicle we will go back to your accomodation/our meeting point. We will be back at around 4 p. m.
