HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO TASTE WINE AT THE VERY SAME PLACE IT HAS BEEN CREATED? It takes a tremendous amount of energy to go from planting a vineyard up to the time the “juice of gods” is ready to be poured into barrels. Vine tasting accompanied by stories told by those who know every detail about them is truly fascinating! While having a glass of wine in such a place, you may not only catch the passion from the owners but also ask them the most notorious questions about wine – How weather shapes the taste of wine? Is old always better? Single variety or blend wine?
EVERY YEAR WE OFFER TAILORED CULINARY AND WINE TASTING TOURS that include both travels to the best vineyards and festivals where you can try wine from all around Poland! Please check our Wine Tours, and below HAVE A LOOK AT THE WINE FESTIVALS CALENDAR. Fancy a trip at that time? Just text or call us!
