Food and wine-tasting events can be organised in various ways … with an aperitif, with a special dinner, with an after-dinner speciality …
The best way to discover local wines is of course to visit a well-stocked wine cellar …
Villa Quaranta offers guests the possibility to visit the historic Tommasi Viticoltori winegrowers at Pedemonte di Valpolicella (a few miles from Villa Quaranta itself) to taste a selection of exceptional products. In the suggestive atmosphere of the wine-tasting room overlooking long rows of wine barrels, the wines presented include the classical Valpolicella varieties, such as Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto.
For visitors who would also like to try local foods as they sip these famous wines, Tommasi Viticoltori also proposes a variety of specialities.
If you do not have the time or the chance to visit the Tommasi Viticoltori azienda directly, the food and wine tasting experience organised at the Villa Quaranta wine cellar will in any case provide a great amount of information on the gastronomic traditions of the province.
