  • Great experience !!! You get to taste a selection of wine, gin (some strong stuff) and craft beer. Taste on selection of cured meats and local chocolate (you can eat as much chocolate as you want). There is also gifts to purchase and a good outdoor restaurant to finish the day off.
  • We really enjoyed our time here at the spice route. I was with my friends from Germany who just loved it too. We had wonderful lunch, followed by local made Ice cream and chocolate. The stunning scenery and ambiance will make you want to always come back.
  • Great collection of things to do including chocolate and beer tasting, ice cream, glass blowing and a great restaurant. Lovely place to take the whole family and make a day of it. Can get quite busy on a nice day so come prepared!
  • This is a great place to go with a big group of friends. There are so many tasting options available! I highly recommend the chocolate tasting, ice cream tasting and grappa tasting. The food at the restaurant is great. We had the marinated vegetables and pizza, both were fantastic. Make sure you check out the glass shop before doing any of the alcohol tastings, for obvious reasons.
  • Really beautiful but also very expensive. They mostly cater for tourists so if your local expect fancy prices with a fancy place. Their cured meats tasting was a bit underwhelming but the views are amazing and the history of the place is really interesting.
