  • Location: Venice, Italy
  • Duration: 5 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3303WIN
Delve into the wines and winemaking heritage of the Veneto region on this small-group, half-day trip from Venice. Traveling in an air-conditioned Mercedes minivan, visit a historical Veneto ‘cantina’ (winery) housed in a 17th-century villa. Admire its rolling vineyard, discover how the wines are produced, see the barrel-stocked cellars, and learn about the Veneto’s wine history and its typical grape varieties. Finish with a wine tasting and homemade appetizers served up with expert insights from your winery host.

Numbers are limited to eight people on this small-group tour, ensuring a personalized experience.
Meet your driver-guide near Piazzale Roma in central Venice. Then, board your air-conditioned Mercedes minivan and travel through the Veneto region toward Treviso, just north of Venice.

On route, gain insight into the Veneto’s winemaking heritage and how its viticulture dates to Roman times — a fact substantiated by the Roman writer Pliny, who described the region as a ‘vineyard’ way back in the 1st century.

Head for the Lison-Pramaggiore region and arrive at a 17th-century country villa that’s home to a historical, family-run cantina. Admire the views over its garden-like 40-hectare (0.4 kilometer) vineyard and then head inside.

Meet your winery host and get an enlightening introduction to the 50-year-old winery. Discover why the local terrain and other conditions are perfect for producing excellent wines, and learn the different grapes grown here, from Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Cabernet France to Chardonnay and others — all typical to Veneto.

Take a guided tour of the winery and step inside the cellars to see the huge wine barrels before settling at an outdoor or indoor table for a wine tasting.

Savor the wine with nibbles such as fresh bread and local cheese, learn how the wine is made, and get expert tips from your host on the foods and flavors that best complement it.

If you wish, stock up on a bottle or two from the shop (own expense) before returning to Venice, where your trip ends at the original departure point.

This is one of the best wine tastings we have attended. The wines were delicious and very reasonably priced. The facility was clean and decorated in vintage equipment and pictures. Will definitely be purchasing the wine in the US.

A fantastic day out from Venice! Highly recommended!! After reading previous reviews I was concerned about not finding the pick up point at the Plaza Roma, however it is extremely easy to locate - just behind and to the right of the public toilets. You can see the Hotel Olympia from the pick up point. The drive out to the Paladin winery was very comfortable in an air conditioned mini bus. The tour itself was great, our guide showed us around the winery and was very knowledgeable on the process of wine making (although we didn't actually see nay of the wine making process). We then sampled 11 different wines, including prosecco, a liquor, and a sparkling red. We were given varieties of salami and 'drunk' cheese and crackers to have with our wine. The tasting was the highlight of the tour! We bought 2 bottles at a very reasonable price, which we enjoyed back at our hotel in Venice! The only negative comment about the tour would be that we didn't actually get to go out onto the vineyard itself, or see the wine making process. It would have been great if we could have picked some grapes, or had some pictures taken in the vineyard and around the grounds. Also our tour was only for 4 hours, we spent and hour or so travelling each way to the winery, then 2hrs at the winery itself. I would still recommend this tour to anyone who has time to do it whilst in Venice! We thoroughly enjoyed it!
