Sirmione is famous worldwide for the Lugana wine, a mineral / citrus and quite acid white wine. We love it and our friends at ElCitera are more than happy to welcome you and tell you how crazy they are about it. A visit in cellar room, a stroll in the vineyard and then a great or a small tasting, it’s up to you. They pick you up here and they will bring you back.
June > October Sunny afternoon, not guaranteed in case of bad weather – Booking required.
Bike Wine Tour
If you want you can ride on a bike in Lugana. Lugana is a small area of vineyard in Sirmione, it’s just a 4Km flat ride from the Hotel. Booking suggested.
Valpolicella, the land of mighty Amarone, is a big hillside between Sirmione & Verona. The countryside is great, in the town of Negrar there’s a very nice lunch/tasting resturant Vigna 800 but for a proper cantina visit, we want to higlight Zyme & Azienda Agricola Quintarelli Giuseppe. The Present & the Hystory of the Amarone. If you want to have a full Amarone day we can arrange a private tour with a driver.
