Custoza and Borghetto are two pretty little villages south-west of Verona. This area is not so touristy, so here you are the perfect tour if you want to spend a day in a relaxed atmosphere, immersed in the green of these hilly vineyards.
We’ll reach Custoza, first, where you’ll visit a local winery and taste their wines. The most famous wine is Custoza, a white blend of local grapes; but you’ll taste also some red and sparkling wines!
Than we’ll reach Valeggio sul Mincio, a little town with a beautiful medieval castle, and so famous for tortellini. We’ll visit, if possible, a shop where tortellini are produced since many generations and the staff will show you how tortellini are prepared and tell you some details about the production (15 mn. approximately).
After this show cooking you’ll probably be hungry… so we’ll reach a local restaurant in the stunning hamlet of Borghetto, where you’re going to have a complete traditional Italian lunch (starters, first and second course, dessert) based on seasonal and local food such as tortellini and, of course, paired with more wine.

We want you to spend a lovely day with no distress so, please, in booking our tours, inform us if you have limited mobility (in some old cellars there are stairs); or if you have any intolerance or allergy about food/wine (some tours are including appetizers in the cellar or lunch in local restaurant).
We ask you to inform us if you have any appointment after the tour (if you booked a train ticket, an opera show in Arena or a reservation for a restaurant), so we can do our best to respect the schedule.
In the cellar the temperature is constant 15 Celsius degrees (59 Fahrenheit), so we suggest to take with you a sweater or a jacket; if it is possible we will try to show you the vineyards, so it’s recommended to wear sneakers or comfortable shoes.
