Bologna hills wine tour: visiting an historic and artisanal winery
You cannot visit the North unless you have truly experienced wines from Bologna and Modena, where sparkling or so-called bubbled wines are very typical. In recent years, we have met so many winemakers who are real “vignaioli“, i.e. they take care of their grapevines just like they do with their beloved children.
For example, Cesare and Silvia are the fifth generation of farmers in the Bolognese Hills. They used to play catch as little children in the vineyards, they grew up respecting their land and experiencing the hard work, breathing in the wine-harvest, the must fermenting in the cellar… Today, they run the winery, respecting terroir: the land, the climate and man’s ability to adapt to nature in order to produce a homemade, balanced wine that leaves you with a true emotion.
Our variety of wine experiences thus include guided-tours to the oldest wineries of Bologna and Modena, and tasting CDO- and CGDO-certified wines (the new Italian sparkler Pignoletto, Barbera, Merlot, and Lambrusco, to mention a few), accompanied with typical products of our area such as Prosciutto di Modena, Parmigiano Reggiano and Bologna Mortadella.
If you have not enough time and prefer to stay downtown, we can do a Walking Wine Tour in Bologna or Modena’s historical centre thus tasting local wines and food in lovely wine bars and old Osterie where locals go to have their favourite glass of wine.
Last but not least, if you are a super wine lover, we can organize a Mini-Masterclass on Wines from the Emilia-Romagna region and Italy with our passionate Sommelier. Just choose your favourite wine experience!
