We can see the dry-stone walls built long time ago as terraces for vines. UNESCO listed them as one of the world heritage sites, recognizing the art of it and the way in which they are built with stones piled onto others without using any other material except dry earth. Visit of the vineyards, cellar with barrels and possible wine tasting!

Mara had great inside knowledge to the surrounding area with regards to history, food, culture and geography. Went with two other couples, and we all had big smiles and full belly’s from start to finish.
Lovely tour and wine tasting

This was a very nice tour of an area I probably never would have seen otherwise! We had a relatively small group (7 people) whom we travelled around to different villages near Lake Como. Our guide, Luca, made the tour very personal and gave great details about everything we were seeing. We went to a delicious lunch at an agriturismo (the cost of lunch isn’t included but definitely worth it) and then to a winery for a tasting. Getting to and from on the train was a breeze. If you’re interested in seeing Lake Como and especially the Valtellina wine valley north of the lake, I’d definitely recommend!
Wonderful day of cheese, wine, and great company!

Excellent day! We picked up the tour in Varenna and meet our tour guide Guilla and a wonderful couple-Zac and Rachel who toured with us. Go Buckeyes--small world. Enjoyed the day of traveling to cheese country, with lunch at an wonderful local restaurant, followed by trip to dry stone wall vineyard and winery for tour and tasting. Great fun and exceptional tour guide. Well worth the money and the day7!
Very nice day near Como lake
