A virtual wine tasting class isn’t new, but we wanted to make it more…intimate.
Our goal: to help bring our family-owned Valpolicella winery network together with our clients across the globe, as we do with our ‘real-life’ Amarone wine tours from Verona – a virtual tasting wine with samples, direct from Italy.
The Valpolicella wine region is a global producer of top red wine made up of four wine appellations: Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone, and Recioto.
Broken down, Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG and Valpolicella Ripasso DOC are the top tiers that garner the attention of wine lovers the world over. But, Valpolicella DOC and Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG keep connoisseurs fascinated with the region, in part due to their ancient winemaking practices that live on today.
Our full-day wine tour is a great exploration of Valpolicella wines with three winery visits, tastings of Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone, and Recioto, and a traditional lunch. Your day is led by a sommelier or equivalent wine expert who will guide you through the region’s winemaking traditions and style.
