During wine tours you can expect a visit to one or more wineries in Aosta Valley, and its duration can vary according to personal taste and the area in which the tour is focused. Owners of the companies and professional sommelier will help you to discover what’s hidden behind every bottle, how to drink it and and how to pair it with the dishes of our local cuisine.

You can visit the wine cellar premises to see the various processing phases of the wines: from the vineyard (weather permitting) right through to the bottling, including how it’s fermented, how the grape skins and juice are mixed and how it’s aged.

The wine tasted directly from the winery has a special flavour. The territory, its perfumes, the history of wine is all around you.

All tastings include the complete tour of the winery and, if you wish and the climate is on our side, of the vineyards. At the end of the tasting tour you’ll have an opportunity to buy the wines at competitive prices.
