First of all: Francesca was amazing! She made this trip unforgettable in every possible way! We enjoyed alot of different proseccos and foods, and we learned some really cool things about the prosecco and how it was made. After this tour we love prosecco even more (if thats even possible). The hosts at the wineyards also was very warm and welcoming, and made our day so special! Thank you so much to all who was with us this day! We really hope to see you guys again some time in the furure!
