Teroldego is an ancient grape that comes from a northern part of Italy called Trentino. We were so fortunate to have an invitation to visit Foradori. An organic winery that had the original clone of the Teroldego varietal. They are also one of the only wineries to age their wines in clay pots…a practice dating back before ancient Rome!
What an experience…more later!
On the northern shores of Lago di Garda, Italy’s largest lake, is the village of Riva del Garda. A must visit for its indescribable beauty!
One of the best experiences we have on our tours is learning to make the local, regional Italian cuisine! This time we learned to make “Tortellini di Valeggio” from scratch. This is my kind of “team building” activity!!!
So much fun together! More later… Team Vitae!
Extra special treat to bring our group to Quintarelli, one of the greatest wine making families in the Valpolicella region!
One of Italy’s most beautiful cities! A guided tour through Verona’s history from Roman times to present. What a day!!!
Corte Fornello is a multigenerational-family run winery in the Custoza wine region. They are located southwest of Verona close to the town of Valeggio sul Mincio, famous for its handmade tortellini pasta. Coming here is like going to see family you love visiting…always leaving with a smile!
Every wine, food and cultural tour of Italy must start with great wine food and friends!!! What better way to start than at a local restaurant in “Fair Verona” Italy. Local food with local wines to match…Perche no?!? What a start…so much fun together!!!
