Road trip! The Allegrini Family welcomes two couples on a luxurious Allegrini “wine country” adventure through some of Northern Italy’s most magnificent countrysides, glorious vineyards and charming cities.
In the Valpolicella region of Italy, the Allegrini Family has been producing wine for generations. During your visit, you’ll stay at the Allegrini’s Villa della Torre bed and breakfast property, a Roman noble residence built during the high Renaissance period, located just outside of Verona. You’ll enjoy a magnificent dinner at Villa della Torre on one of your evenings. At the Allegrini Winery, at the footsteps of the Dolomites, you’ll be treated to a private tour and wine tasting, and during your three-day stay, you will also experience a cooking class where you’ll learn to make homemade pasta, risotto and traditional Italian dishes. A sightseeing tour of Verona with a private, English-speaking guide and a tour of Venice with a very special guided visit of the Basilica di San Marco are just two of several side trips that could be arranged.
Traveling southwest to Tuscany, you’ll find yourself amid the breathtaking Montalcino hills. Here you will be treated to a private tour of the San Polo vineyards and winery, and a wine tasting at the San Polo guesthouse. A very special dinner at Allegrini’s San Polo Estate also awaits you. Visits to surrounding wineries, historic sites and restaurants will be arranged at your request.
A stone’s throw from the Mediterranean Sea and located along Bolgheri’s beautiful cypress-lined via Bolgherese, is Allegrini’s Poggio al Tesoro Estate, the next stop on your journey. From your private tour of the vineyards and winery to your tasting at the guesthouse and dinner at Poggio al Tesoro, your days and nights will be beautiful. Bolgheri boasts popular excursions, including the Populonia Etruscan site and Baratti, trips to San Gimignano, Volterra and more.
