      A day to remember in the Valpolicella hills.
      Firstly the weather was amazing and the Winery location provides breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and mountains. The truffle hunt was excellent, a great walk through the woods down into the valley. Our guide had an amazing lively dog who found many truffles on the walk. On the return to the winery, we enjoyed a pairing of wines with cheese and meat and pasta. The wines are amazing and you enjoy them and the food in a wonderful old vaulted ceiling bar, dining lounge. All of the staff were fabulous, so helpful, polite, and chatty. A great event.

      Ok
      The views were amazing & family was very friendly. Appears to be a strongly family business. Somewhat difficult to get to if you don’t have a car - bus instructions didn’t meet with the bus station guidance, so it was a little tricky. Food offering was minimal and wine pours were minimal as well. Overall, it was fine but not as good as the many tastings we have been to in Napa.

      Stunning views and great tour
      A wonderful morning out. As soon as we booked we got detailed instructions sent through from Jacob on how to get from Verona to the vineyard. They even came to the bus stop to collect us. The views were incredible and just what you want to see. The tour was just long enough before we sat down to try 3 lovely wines. We had a selection of local cheeses and salami as well as local biscuits with the final wine. I would like to spend more time in the hills next time I visit.

      Absolutely stunning in every way.
      From the moment you arrive to every minute you spend in Santa Maria Valverde - it is time filled with knowledge, beauty and wonderful tastes. The truffle hunting experience is made special by three things: a very knowledgeable host, fantastic lively and hard working dog (Brozie) and the pasta you have afterwords with the truffles. Nothing is too much for the family who run this vineyard: from delicious food to mini lessons in wine making to the tour of the Amarone prosecution. The wine itself is out of this world. You learn a lot, you laugh a lot and you spend every minute in the most friendly and beautiful atmosphere. Special thank you to Cicillia (it was her second day working) who gave us a wealth of knowledge about the love and care that goes into making the wine. Cicillia-you were great! Thank you all very much for an experience that will stay with us for years to come!

      The best wine tasting & most beautiful vineyard in Valpolicella!
      We booked a wine tasting in advance on-line and when we got there on Oct 5, it was such a fantastic place! They were just finishing the harvesting of the grapes so it was perfect timing. The lady who showed us around this magical place was very knowledgeable and new the owners/family very well. The vineyard is completely ecological so no pesticide - just natural! The wines were delicious so of course we bought some with us home. Just wish I bought more!!

      An afternoon to remember!
      We had the most amazing time! From the moment we booked to the farewell to the owner Nicolas, we were treated with utmost respect and true genuine hospitality, our guide Nadia, was the most genuine, informative yet warm and welcoming, she went out of her way to ensure we get to see the harvest and storage of grapes ready to be turned into the most delicious Amarone. We were hoping for a true experience and honestly, we wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you again, it is definitely an experience we will remember forever!

      Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde Visit
      After arranging bus transportation for us from Verona, our DOP Olive Oil visit was amazing. We received individualized attention from our hosts, explaining the history of the place and why it was special. The olive oil tasting was paired with 3 glasses of Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde‘s wines and a cheese and meat platter. We got to share our visit with another wonderful couple that we met during our time there. All in all, it was a highlight of our wonderful stay in Italy.

      An experience only found in Italy
      One of the best experiences of our lives...we learnt alot about the effort and time that goes into producing a bottle of wine...the dependence on the weather and the dedication of the owners and staff...it's easy to grab a bottle in the supermarket but it's takes a year to or two in advance to create...a beautiful day out and the hospitality was amazing...the owner took 6 of us to the bus stop! Otherwise it would've been a long walk, they love their vineyard and would like to share it with the world!!

      Wonderful vineyard tour and panoramic wine tasting
      We loved this vineyard tour through vineyards terraced in the Roman times. We also learned about the Valpolicella wine making process, toured the facilities and then had a long and beautiful tasting at a table in a beautiful veranda overlooking the wine valley that was breathtaking. This place is so beautiful!! The wines were fabulous also, and we shipped several of them home!

      Memorable afternoon
      Short bus ride from Verona to the pick up spot where our host and owner of the winery took us up to his beautiful family vineyard. We were shown the vineyard then welcomed for a tasting with delicious meat cheese and the owners homemade spicy cherries…which were amazing! The views the wine the vibe all a calming experience. Highly recommend

    It was a beautiful experience. Came from Venice by train the. Got a cab. You have the option of bus too but we were in a rush. Raphaella greeted us with a warm family like greeting. We discovered a beautiful heartwarming family run business. Had a walk around the winery estate. Inside and out. And got to taste three wines with bread and meat cuts. A wonderful 2h. Only thing is we would have like engaging with the owner a bit more but Raphaella was wonderful. Recommended.

    An amazing couple of hours tasting beautiful wines and snacking on some tasty food.
    Learning about the wines, winery and family history was very interesting but conversation went in all directions as we enjoyed the banks of the Adige.

    We were upgraded as trip advisor did NOT inform us that the time of our visit was changed. although I had booked this trip many weeks earlier and received confirmation suddenly there was no space for us which made no sense. The winery was kind enough to fit us in on the morning tour to the actual winery so we got to see some of the Tuscan countryside which was a bonus for us. The wines were amazing and the cheese and coldcuts served with the wine tasting delicious. Later we were dropped off right at our Air BNB which we appreciated because it was HOT. I wonder of it is possible to book this tour without using Trip Advisor.

    Jacopo gave a history of the Duomo and an insightful walking tour. Next, we went to a private home on the bank of the Adige and sampled hand selected, local artisanal foods(salami,cheeses, olives, bread, marinated vegetables....) His wife's homemade marmalade was wonderful. Each food was carefully paired with four wines from Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde. We learned about the background of each variety and had an informative and relaxing experience. Jacopo is a great host and I highly recommend this experience. I liked it so much I visited the winery the following day.

    After spending a few days with a tour group, it was nice to take a break and get some personal attention. Our host was absolutely charming. While he provided us all the intricacies of 3 different wines, he also allowed us private time on his terrace overlooking the river. It was the perfect experience, combining interesting details about the winery, delicious snacks and to die for view. Loved it!

    We spent a couple of delightful hours with Jacopo in his garden beside the river tasting the wine from his family business. He is very interesting and knows his subject. We learn't a lot and the wine which he paired with local foods was excellent.
    We bought some of the wine and look forward to it's arrival! We would absolutely recommend this experience as a lovely way to pass the time beside the river in Verona.

    This was an exquisite experience with a wonderful host. The unique thing about this experience is that you Jacopo is the vineyard owner, so he has direct firsthand knowledge of his 5-generation family vineyard. You are in an idyllic setting along the banks of the river, and it's a personable experience since it's small numbers of people. We loved chatting with Jacopo, and of course, the wine was spectacular! The appetizers were delicious, and we both came away with bottles of wine to savor at home. I highly recommend this experience - you will have a wonderful, relaxing time and learn quite a bit with a knowledgeable and friendly host.
