Hiking tour from Verona city, with visit and Amarone tasting in an organic winery.
We will leave from the historical centre to reach the closest area of Valpolicella, the hills to the north of Verona, called Torricelle by the locals because of the presence of 19th century fortifications. Military roads dug into trenches in the rock and monumental fortresses will lead us to the cellar where the breathtaking view of the city will repay the effort of the climb.
The winery is organic and family run, surrounded by green hills and with a small farm of animals. After a short walk through the vineyards and olive groves, we will visit the charming barrel room where Amarone is matured, the production area and we will finish with a tasting of 5 wines including the famous Amarone.
The winery is also a farmhouse and at the end of the tasting you can choose to stop for lunch or return to Verona (on foot or by bus).
The wine hiking route in Valpolicella is about 3 km (one way) with 180 mt of difference in altitude. T
