Get close to the reality of growing grapes and making wine
Sep 2021
A very positive experience. Interesting to hear about the considerations and choices that a producer of grapes and of wine must go through. Impressive what knowledge and trade layer is needed. Excellent host, lovely wines and accompaniments. Authentic place and nicely located.

An absolutely lovely experience! Nicola was a fantastic host. Very knowledge an passionate about his work. We spent time walking through the vineyard and his cellars. We finished with an amazing view and a tasting of 3 of his wines, paired with meats and cheeses. Would recommend to anyone looking for classic Italian countryside wine tasting!

The most incredible experience !!
This was the most amazing experience by far.
Ilaria came to the bus station to drive me in the vineyard. She was kind and very adorable.
I am grateful for having met you. You were so sweet to me and I will never forget your hospitality and the advices you gave me for the life I want.
Then I have met Nicola who drove me to the vines to see the grape harvest.
He even gave me some sweet grapes to taste.
Then we came back to the house where I could visit the production of the wine and even take a look to the Narnia door, a red door behind which there are some great bottles.
To finish I could taste three different wines in front of an extraordinary view. What I really appreciated is that the tasting started with a sweet wine very easy to drink then it gets stronger. And it was the same with the cheeses : from light to strong
And ohlala I need to mention the peach chutney … so delicious !!!

So to conclude, thank you Ilaria and Nicola for making me live this incredible experience.
If i come back one day in Italy, be sure I will visit you again.
Thanks for everything,
Sarah.

Wonderful experience
Sep 2021
This was our second visit to the fabulous Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde. We had such a great time in 2020 that we brought 2 friends with us in 2021. Still a fabulous place and we were able to reach it easily by bus from Verona following the directions provided. (bus to San Floriano where they pick you up) Last year Llaria gave the tour and this year her husband. Great experience again (admittedly the English was very difficult to understand at times) wonderful views from the vineyards and the food, wine, olive oil were all delicious. Highly recommend a visit.

Outstanding wine tour and tasting - a really special experience
Aug 2021
The wine tour was outstanding. It was obvious that they are experts and passionate about their wines, processes, history. And, in fact, the wine was delicious and being paired with local sausages, cheese and their own olive oil made it really special. The location is beautiful and easily reached by local bus from Verona (to San Floriano where they pick you up). Responses to questions via email were fast. It was a really exceptional experience and highly recommended. We've been on many wine tours before in Italy and Oregon (where we are from), and this was the best one we have been on.

Wonderful!!
Aug 2021 • Couples
We loved this experience. Even though we were a little bit what can be called « annoying clients » that day (we were late and we forgot our hat), Nicola (winemaker in person) was very nice to us and made sure everything was alright on top on giving interesting explanations on his vineyard. The place is heaven-like with a beautiful view on the valley, and the wines are absolutely delicious, we recommend: 10/10!

Must try wine experience in Valpolicella!!
Wonderful experience with Ilaria who explained thoroughly all the steps needed to understand how wine is produced and how to choose what to buy! I have been to other wine tastings but this was by far the best. In my case we tried three different wines accompanied by cheese, salami, a sbrisolona and their olive oil! The experience was magnificent and the view breathtaking

Wonderful experience!!
Jul 2021 • Couples
What an amazing experience! Do not overlook this opportunity. Personal tour with the winemaker himself who shares his knowledge and love of winemaking with such passion and pleasure. Seven generations of winemakers in this beautiful historic home and property! The owners also maintain 200 olive trees with which they produce their own olive oil! The wine is also an absolute must to try, the best reds I’ve ever tried. Truly a wonderful way to experience the Italian countryside and culture.
