Tartufo Bianco (White Truffles)…

The province of Cuneo near the city of Alba has “the original” and best white truffles in the world!  This was the second year we were lucky enough to enjoy one of the world’s greatest delicacies.  Many thanks to our friend and Trifulau (Truffle Hunter), Marco Varaldo…and most importantly his Truffle Dog!!!


Venezia is one of the most visited cities in the world.  We do not include visiting Venice on our Veneto/Alto-Adige tour but guests are welcome to extend their stay and visit this historically important city. Team Via Vitae is happy to help make this happen!

Prosecco or Spumante? Why not both at Villa Sandi!

Our last winery visit of the Veneto/Alto-Adige tour was at Villa Sandi. One of the most prestigious and oldest prosecco producers in Italy. Not only do they produce amazing prosecco but also traditional method (Champagne method) sparkling wine too! I attached a link to their website so you can see more of the experience we had for yourself.

Bassano del Grappa…

A city in north central Veneto not known by many tourists but not to be missed on your travels! Bassano del Grappa sits at the beginning of the passage to the Dolomites. Beautiful views and a grappa museum with free tasting too!

Abbazia di Novacella

Visiting the Abbazia di Novacella is like stepping back in time almost 1000 years ago. It is one of the oldest active Abbys in Italy. A great experience in a part of Italy that used to be Austria for hundreds of years prior to World War II. Oh and they also make amazing wines too!
