We spent two rewarding days with Mario—a drive near Verona to two Valpolicella wineries and a drive near Padua for a cooking experience at another winery. Both were fantastic! We learned many important and invaluable lessons about wine, about food, and about the culture in the Venice area. As our guide and teacher, Mario was very personable and friendly. As... More

Mario and Silvia took wonderful care of my friend and I while we stayed in the Veneto Region. Mario translated our cooking classes, taught us about wine and gave us two fantastic wine tours. We learned so much from him I doubt my friend or I will ever look at wine the same again, in a very good way. Silvia... More

I found a review of Venice Day Trips when looking for a guided tour of Prosecco vineyards during a recent trip. Other tours that had been recommended to me seemed outrageously expensive so I was looking around. I emailed the contact with a request and heard back right away. It was one of the best decisions we made on the... More

One of the highlights of our time in Venice. My friend and I went on an all day trip with our amazing and very knowledgeable guide Mario to the Valpolicella region. We visited 2 small family run vineyards and tasted some excellent wine, along with a nice tour of each facility. Mario was the real gem in this trip. He... More

My partner and I went on a Prosecco Wine Tour with Mario while we were visiting Venice. It turned out to be one of our favorite days of the entire trip. The wineries visited were fascinating and hospitable and the lunch at the sustainable farm restaurant will forever be one of our favorite meals. And the wines we sampled were... More

Mario Piccinin took our party of 5 on a wine tour in Valpolicella that we will all cherish for the rest of our lives! We drove through the incredible Veneto countryside (chauferred expertly by Mario) and toured two wineries with a tasty lunch along the way. The scenery, food, wine and cultural experience was unforgettable. This experience was made even... More
