Tour description provided by Viator

Discover the famous wines of the Veneto on an informative and appetizing half-day excursion by minivan. Spaces are limited on each tour and groups will consist of a maximum of eight people. You'll travel in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan and receive individual attention from your expert driver guide.

Your tour begins as you board your air-conditioned minivan and make your way to the southeast of Treviso, only a short distance from Venice. You will travel to a 17th-century villa once the home of the famous Doge Giustinian. Surrounded by 40 acres (16 hectares) of vineyards this area is perfect for the production of high quality wine. The grapes cultivated are merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, refrosco and raboso, verduzzo, chardonay, pinot grigio, tocai, traminer, and prosecco; all these grapes are typical of this area.

When you arrive, learn how the delicious wines are produced, visit a cantina with its huge wine barrels, and then enjoy a wine tasting with homemade appetizers. Of course, there is the opportunity to stock up on a bottle or two of 'vino italiano'.
