Interesting morning of wine tasting

Learning of the Valpolicella wine and Amarone was very educational. The tasting was good, but would have liked a bit more substantial food.

Good experience

This vineyard was so beautiful! We walked though th process of how they make wine and walk through the vineyard as well. Then tasted 3 different wines with either cheese, salami or a cookie. Also, we had 4 different couples with us and we had great conversation during our tasting. The only reason I gave took one star away from the review is that the tour guide did not speak English that well and it was suppose to be an English speaking tour. But we managed... we did have a good time. Just note when booking if you get transportation or not! I did not realize that transportation was NOT included in the price of this ticket until after I booked. I did contact the vineyard via WhatsApp and they were quick to respond to me with transportation for an additional 15 euros per person.

Dear Jill, thank you for your detailed review. This season we have hired high school kids as helpers for their school-work alternation project. They are very young and their English certainly needs to be perfected. We apologize. Regarding the shuttle, when our transport is not available we find every possible solution to facilitate the journey up here, gathering our guests in a van and sharing the travel costs. Sometimes the cost is 10 Euros, sometimes 15 Euros, depending on how many seats are occupied. Best regards

Great tour!! My wife and I met Jacopa, the creative director of this family-run vineyard and winery. Beautiful setting overlooking the hills and valleys outside of Verona! We learned about Valpolicella classico, ripasso, and amarone; walked through the vineyard and the cellars; and tasted the wonderful wines. Jacopa was a great host, very welcoming and knowledgeable.

Excellent tour and wine! The information during the tour was mainly about what made their method of wine making unique which was very interesting! For me, as quite the inexperienced wine taster, I would have liked to get a bit more information during the tasting itself on what to look for etc.

We were very pleased to find that this tour was available on All Saint’s Day! Jacobo picked us up at the train station with no problem and drove us to the winery to begin the tour. As it was late in the year, it was just us and one other couple, however Jacobo took the time to take us to the vineyard and explain the geography and history of the area. The wine tasting was indoors as it was a bit cold, and the indoor area with wood burning stove and quirky decor was amazing! The wine was fantastic and the meat and cheese served was very good. We had a great opportunity to dine with and meet the other couple on our tour. Only negative was that it seemed that we were a smaller group later in the year, so the staff didn’t pay as much attention to us (meaning our glasses were left empty for long periods of time without recognition, and our table was kind of left to our own devices without a lot of visits or explanation from staff). Regardless, this is an absolutely beautiful, organic, and family-run winery with astonishing views. I would highly recommend this tour!

Thanks Gregory for taking the time to review us. We did the tour gladly, of course! Bye, Jacopo

This was an amazing tour. We got so much information and attention at this beautiful, small winery! Coffee was served first, then tour through the vines with lots of information. Great tasting with small bites to pair with it. An incredible value and experience

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour of Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde vineyard and winery! We were picked up at the Verona train station and taken to the winery while learning something of the vineyard and winery. When we arrived at the winery, we were given a very informative tour of the vineyard and winery and then enjoyed the amazing wines produced there. And the views from the winery are incredible! We are so glad that we got to experience this awesome tour!

È stata una giornata molto formativa dal punto di vista enologico per un neofita come me. Esperienza multisensoriale che ha deliziato occhi mente e palato. Personale altamente qualificato e in grado di rispondere a qualsiasi quesito e curiosità. il tutto è stato condito da una degustazione servita davanti un panorama mozzafiato.

Wunderschönes, kleines, familiengeführtes Weingut im Valpolicella. Nach einer Führung durch die Weinberge haben wir die verschiedenen Weine verkosten dürfen. Dazu gab eine Auswahl an lokalen Käsen und eine sehr leckere Salami. Die Besitzer sind super nett und haben uns einen tollen Vormittag bereitet. Ich kann diese Tour uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.

Superbe découverte d’une petite entreprise avec des gens hypers sympathiques, chaleureux et généreux. Il pleuvait à boire debout mais la journée n’a pas été gâchée pour autant avec leur plan B pour la dégustation. Magnifique endroit. Je recommande cette activité chaudement
