Visit to an oil mill and a winery with tasting of local products in the Soave region

Experience in Illasi

An experience to discover the Frantoio Bonamini oil mill and the Monte Tondo winery, in the picturesque area of Soave, east of Lake Garda and Verona. A special place, rich in rolling hills and beautiful sceneries, where various excellent food and wine specialities are produced.
We will take you on a journey through the history and delicacies of this region. You will visit the Bonamini olive groves and oil mills and enjoy a guided tasting of 3 oils on bread and other Bonamini products such as bruschetta with green and black olive pâté and fresh pesto.
Between the two tastings, you will have enough time for the charming town of Soave with its famous Scaliger castle. Afterwards, you will visit the museum of the Cantina Monte Tondo, where you can admire antique agricultural equipment.
During a guided tour of the winery and the cellar, you will get insights into all the stages of wine production, from pressing the grapes to bottling, to ageing and refinement of the wine in the bottle.
Finally, you will enjoy a tasting of 2 Soave Classico and 2 Valpolicella wines, accompanied by a platter of local cheeses, rosemary focaccia bread and other little treats.
