Excellent. We happened to be the only ones on this tour on the day and felt very spoilt. The wine appreciation tasting at the winery was superb, the sommelier made us feel very welcome even though we didnt have a wide knowledge of wine, he gave us some outstanding tips on combining wine with mouthfuls of cheese (dessert wine) or blackcurrent jam (with red). We bought both these combinations and sat on the Canal Grande that night with our cheese and dessert wine and watched the gondoliers float past. Perfect dayReviewed by: Anne Marie, September 2012
We enjoyed the experience very much. The winery tour was great. The tastings were quite good; especially the prosecco. We actually purchased and had some shipped home. It was a nice time shared with another couple.Reviewed by: William T, August 2013
The Paladin Winery was tremendous! Very informative tour, friendly staff and excellent tastings. I did have 2 issues with this trip. The first was finding the transportation near the Plaza Roma. We searched and searched yet couldn't find the area described on our voucher. After three telephone calls we finally found our driver who told us that they had been trying for a year to get the pick up location description updated since the old location no longer exists. Secondly although there were only four of us on the trip I understood that we would have an "english speaking tour", we DID however the other two people on our tour spoke French only, which meant that the tour guide explained is two different times and I feel that we may have lost some interesting points due to the dual language issue. Overall the winery, driver and tour guide were amazing.Reviewed by: Beth S, July 2013
This was a great tour. There was myself and 2 others. We drove 1 hour out of Venice and spent about 2 hours at the one winery. We were shown through the winery, however, not the actual making process. Then we had tastings of several wines and a excellent assortment of meats, cheeses and bread while tasting.
Recommend as it was relaxing and not too long.
Disappointed because we were expecting to be shown the process of wine making - all we were shown was some barrels, bottles and vineyard. The wine tasting was good though.Reviewed by: Karen E, July 2013
