Verona Day Trip To Lugana Wine Country With Pagus Tours
We considered several different Verona day trip options available through Pagus Wine Tours. I was concerned that David would not enjoy the red wine tour – even if he tasted expensive Volpollicello or Amarone wines. So we debated either a pure 3 stop Lake Garda tour or a tour which would give us a taste test of Lake Garda with a wine tour. We opted to try this second Lugana wine country tour.
After our visit to Sirmione on Lake Garda, we drove the quick trip to the Azienda Agricola F.lli Fraccaroli winery for our Lugana wine experience. The owners proudly shared their wines, snacks and the whole wine making process with us.
Trying The Lugana Wines
We got to try 5 white wines – from a dry sparkling wine to a typical Lugana white through their 100 year anniversary wine. We finished with two different extra sweet wines. While most of their grapes were for white wine, they had a small patch of red wine grape for Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. I liked their red wine. But it was not in the same class as the Amarone and Ripassa I had been spoiled with since visiting Verona.
The Making of Lugana Wine
A Great Visit To Laguna Wine Country
The trip back to Verona seemed so much quicker. It had been a great day with Pagus Wine Tours and Davide. Had we not been leaving for Bologna the next day, we would have considered doing the red wine tour as well!
How much fun is wine making! Have you seen the grapes being harvested? Have you visited Lugana wine country?
