Two days in vineyards accompanied by a donkey

Due giorni per vigne e cantine

The culinary tradition is united with the natural heritage in a really calm and sustainable tourist experience, which makes it even more rich and unique. A donkey's pace through the vineyards of the Berici Hills. A hiking trek to slowly discover the places where the grapes native of the area are grown, such as Tai Rosso. Walking is better to be able to appreciate the sights, stopping at the wineries to taste the wines and typical products. In terms of trekking routes, donkeys with holders for luggage transport are available, as well as experienced guides.
Inspired by the Wine Road, the route starts from the Lake of Fimon, with a guided tour and a lunch-tasting of typical products and wines. The lake is rich in important archaeological finds and the surrounding area is rich especially in terms of flora and fauna.
The second stage in Mossano, with a visit to the Grotto of San Bernardino, now a hermitage, then it's time for dinner and an overnight stay at the farmhouse.
The second day includes the descent through the Valley of the Mills, where you can see the two old water mills and observe them "at work".

Mysteries, history, gastronomy and local culture, therefore two days of relaxation and exploration. One of the best ways to live and to get to know this area.
And why with the donkey? Because its manners, its soothing and slow gestures are able to transmit a pleasant tranquillity. Its natural rhythms are a true integration between the walkers and nature. Along with the donkey it is a journey focused on the landscape, made up also of stops and meditations. Admire the magic of the vineyard, the history and the nature, and stop to enjoy the famous wine of the Berici Hills to make the experience even more intense and complete.

The tour operator recommends:

A welcome drink and a welcome by the sommelier, who will present the explanation of the characteristics of the vineyards of the area. A dinner offering typical products, and an overnight stay at the farmhouse.
The cost per person based on minimum 2 guests in a double room: € 190.
The price includes: accommodation in a double room in a farmhouse, welcome drink, dinner, breakfast and lunch, two tours with a tour guide, hike with a donkey.

In the peat bogs of the surroundings were found remains of animals, including tropical, and traces of human activity proto-historical.

A botanical trail with guide, discovering leaves and colours and the magic of autumn forest between botanical varieties unusual and rare. Yellow, red, orange, brown, green and many other shades that blend into a kaleidoscope that squeaks under your feet and relaxes the eye.
