What to expect

Visit the Balzini estate and experience the magnificent tastes of Italy on a private tour. With no one else to distract you from the pleasures, this is a truly special indulgence.

Balzini wines have won numerous prizes for their quality, including Gold at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, 94/100 by Wine Spectator, 92/100 by Wine Enthusiast, Gold at the Vienna International Wine Challenge, and many more. After a personally guided tour of the estate, you’ll taste five different wines and enjoy an optional homemade lunch paired with the estate’s extra-virgin olive oil, grappa and balsamic vinegar.

Winery tour and wine tasting 4 wines (1 hr)

Next step is the terrace: from here you can see the vineyards and the olive oil trees (only 8 acres in total). A breathtaking panorama with a brief explanation of this unusual soil.
