Vino veneto: Explore the regional wines

Showbiz Traveler: Venice

“God made only water, but man made wine,” wrote Victor Hugo in his 1856 “Les Contemplations,” and what better way to sample man’s invention than a guided tour of Venice’s wine country

PROSECCO TO PINO
Begin your wine journey with a private Prosecco wine tasting tour, either a half day or full, in a chauffeured car for two. Prosecco DOC di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, north of Venice, offer a blend of rolling hills, palatial villas, historic wine cellars and sumptuous cuisine. The family-run Bisol Estate offers a warm greeting, a guided tour and exceptionally rated Proseccos at its tasting, ranging from semi-sweet to ultra dry. The Villa Sandi, in Crocetta del Montello, offers beautiful art and architecture, historic wine caves, and wines that start with a sampling of grappa, to Prosecco bruts, to Pinot neros. The tour, divided into two parts, allows the participants to visit local trattorias to taste their cuisine, as well as explore the charming town of Treviso, to sample cheese and other delicacies.

LOCAL MOTION
Lastly, if a little bit of mystery, folklore and local flavor is more to your liking, then do not miss the opportunity to partake in the Venice Baccari Wine Tasting Tours. The tour begins in the center of Venice, where the group departs to explore two different Baccari winebars and their offerings. The tours are two hours in length, giving ample time in each winebar to sample the wines and Venetian snacks, while taking in the sights and sounds of the real Venice. Le Baccanti
