  • A great destination especially for couples. Very nice and romantic place. Really looks like the Italy and we feel that we are there. The wineries are beautiful and worth doing the tasting with Winery Pizzato. And have lunch in the restaurant Mama Gemma. The spring chicken with risotto is amazing. Worth going to.
