DISCOVER TRADITION OF VALPOLICELLA VALLEY BY VISITING AMARONE WINERY AND ORGANIC OLIVE OIL MILL
If you are an Amarone wine appreciator and staying in Verona or around Lake Garda, then taking this amazing wine experience of visiting one of the most exquisite Amarone winery and Organic Olive oil mill with extensive sommelier wine tastings is highly recommended!
Your tour will start with a visit to one of the most beautiful wineries in Valpolicella where our local English speaking expert will tell you about processes of wine aging, bottling together with its production and taste some best versions of Amarone della Valpolicella wines. Amarone is known as Valpolicella’s most precious full-bodied velvety wine, with deep ruby red reflections, intense and warm aromatic notes with predominant flavours of spices that are well-balanced and intriguingly complex. The wine is not only a product of the land but also the story of those who produce it. Cultural heritage passed down for centuries about vineyards, wines, people, and passions here in Valpolicella Valley.
Verona’s cultural history is closely tied to its gastronomy and we invite you to try the specialities of the “valley of many cellars” in the cosy restaurant during your wine tasting in winery. Here you will taste the best local delicatessens paired with best wines from the region and your sommelier will reveal you the food and Amarone wine pairing secrets.
Besides great red, Valpolicella Valley is also popular for its Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil from trees plantation that grown around the vineyards.
Thanks to the unique latitude of the territory and to the particular breezes that characterise it, Lake Garda and its hinterland enjoy a particular Mediterranean micro-climate that makes it, since immemorial time, one of the most northerly olive groves cultivated area on the planet.
It is right here, at the foot of Mount Pizzoccolo, where Olive oil Mill grow the lush secular olive groves according to nature, to maintain and renew the natural and cultural heritage that has been handed down from generation to generation over the centuries. The cool breezes that blow off the foothills of the Dolomites are funnelled down this valley and make it ideal for the cultivation of vines and olives. The proximity of Lake Garda ensures the viability of oil production at this, the most northerly latitude in Italy.
From these wonderful plants, every year in October, extra virgin olive oil extract collects the intensity of the aromas and flavours of these places, and the particular, unique and distinctive flavour. The Olive Oil Sommelier will take you on the private tour to the oil mill where you will see all the processes of its production and show you the best way to appreciate the tastes of it. You will learn and taste the aromas of olive oil which are a critical part of its flavour. The part of your learning experience will be pairing olive oils and foods by trying three different types of olive oils—one delicate, one medium, one robust—with a variety of items.
