  • I spent a whole day in the Valley of the Vineyards with my husband. We wanted to meet at least two wineries and we opted for a more familiar to start, and other more industrial. At the beginning of the route there is a Center for tourists. There I got some foders and more information cleared. The familiar was the Don Laurindo, small, but with many varieties and a guide. If you buy, you will not have to pay for tasting. Large-scale already was the Meat: we like a lot. Pay 30.00, we know some types of decultivo forms, go to the caves and do 5 types of wines. There is also a mini course to taste with more property. Our guide was very good. On the way back, we stopped at the cheese dairy Valbrenta areas. There are a variety of cheeses and sweets, but very expensive. And they close at 5:30 pm: in the midst of holiday eve, saw a whole couple arriving at 5:35 pm and were prevented from entering. I found awkward, but it's worth stopping to take a picture with the statue of all donate that lies ahead.

  • It's a wonderful place, it doesn't feel like we're in Brazil. With many wineries from large, with big productions of wines until the small and family. Everything is beautiful: scenery, vineyards, canteens, food and hospitable people. A tourist itinerary that lets anyone blown away! Worth knowing ...
