Wine Tasting Tour
Day 1

Arrival to Venice airport from Scandinavia in the afternoon. Pick up and transfer to the first winery in the Prosecco area famous for Sparkling Wines, part of the Veneto region.

At Ca’ Salina in Valdobbiadene we will be welcomed by Mr. Gregorio Bortolin, the proud owner of the winery. He will take us around so we can enjoy the great view from the outside and will tell us the history and the technique behind the sparkling wine production. After that we will enjoy tasting several of his wines.

After this pleasant visit we will depart toward Vittorio Veneto hills and to the town of Refrontolo to meet 
Mr. Sante, one of the three brothers running Toffoli Family winery. We will appreciate the difference of the wine produced at this winery compare to Ca’ Salina.
We will also taste the Passito di Refrontolo, a very special sweet wine.

In the evening we will check in at the Due Leoni Hotel in the village Sacile. The welcome dinner will be in a restaurant where we will taste a typical Venetian Meal.

Please notice:
To make Prosecco you must use the grape Glera. The producer can blend the Prosecco with grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio, but only up to 15%.

Sparkling wine is called Spumante in Italian. In case you see the word Frizzante on the bottle the wine is semi-sparkling. And Tranquilo means it has no bubbles.
