Amarone wine tours in Valpolicella

Jump to last reply

Hello! Has anyone toured the vineyards in the Valpolicella region, specifically ones that produce Amarone wines? If so, any particular vineyards that you recommend? I am in the initial planning stages for a trip to Italy next spring with the focus primarily on visiting wine regions. We'll have 14 days total and plan on being somewhere in Tuscany for one week of that time. I am looking at Valpolicella also because Amarones are my absolute favorite Italian wines! Plus they are expensive in the U.S. and I was hoping to bring some back from the area that is is produced in.

Does it sounds feasible to fly into Venice, rent a car, drive to Verona, then down to Tuscany and fly out of Florence or Pisa? I have no idea how far apart these cities are from each other so if someone can give me a rough driving time estimate that would be helpful. Once I have a more defined itinerary and know whether or not it is feasible/advisable to include Verona area and the Amarone-producing vineyards, then I will re-post for comments/feedback/specific suggestions. Many thanks in advance!
