Horse & Wine Experience
Un'esperienza a cavallo alla scoperta dei sapori e del paesaggio del Veneto
A wine experience riding a horse to discover the beautiful landscape of Veneto region: a slow-paced tour along the rolling hills where the Soave Classico wine is made. It includes the visit of Rocca Sveva winery, that has been built inside the mountain where the Scaliger Castle of Soave lays. For this reason, the symbol of the winery is a knight astride his war horse.
Here you'll be surrounded by history. In a suggestive vineyard you'll have the chance to enjoy a wine tasting of the 3 gems of DOC Rocca Sveva, along with traditional local cold cuts and cheeses. In each glass of wine you'll savour the exciting story of the winery, that has its deep roots in the past.
