Full description
Hidden in a corner of north-eastern Italy overlooking the Gulf of Trieste, find the old villages of Contovello and Prosecco for the chance to learn about the origins of Prosecco wine. 

Start with a walking tour with your experienced local host through the narrow streets and hidden passages in the historic village of Contovello, once home to a castle with a tower overlooking the city of Trieste and its gulf.
