Veneto Small-Group Wine Tasting Tour

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!

We enjoyed the lovely Paladin Winery/vineyard. Our driver was excellent and was able to tell us a bit about the area. The Paladin representative showed us through the winery from making the wines, to aging them. Our wine tasting was a highlight of the tour with grissini, cheese and thinly slice sausage to cleanse the palate

The trip was great! On time, courteous and a very knowledgeable guide. Clean vehicle and safe driving. The winery itself was wonderfully maintained and culturally unique and the wine tasting presentation was personalized. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was one of the best bits of our holiday. We turned up to Pizzale a Roma to find it was just me and my husband doing the tour, fab! Our driver was a lovely man who ended up taking us on the tour of the vineyard and bringing us the wine to taste. It was really informative and we ended up getting a bit squiffy! We got given some salami and 'drunk' cheese (which was amazing) to have with our wine. We ended up buying 4 bottles of wine to bring home. An excellent day, you must do it.
