If you love Italian food and wine, you will love this tour! You'll cross the picturesque countryside of the Vent Orientale to reach the vineyards of the Veneto and Friuli, and enjoy lunch and wine tastings. Traveling by minivan holding only eight passengers ensures you'll enjoy the benefits of a small group tour.
You will head into the hills of Corno di Rosazzo and Cividale to visit a top wine-maker/oenologist and his vineyard. Wine tastings include great whites and full-bodied reds: Cabernet, Merlot, Refosco, Friulano and Tocai.
Your tasty lunch is served in a tiny trattoria near the Slovenian border, featuring home-made seasonal specialties, Schioppettino wine and, of course, grappa (the local firewater)!
In the afternoon, you'll travel to the picturesque medieval town of Cividale del Friuli, founded by Julius Caesar in 50 B.C. Journey across the Devils Bridge for a spectacular panorama over the Natisone River, then enjoy a short walk around the historic center before driving back to Venice.
