Yawning, as you can see by our bulletin board note...we're scheduled for an early morning departure from Lake Maggiore. Bags out at 6:45, breakfast starts at the same time and we're to be on the coach at 7:45 am, ready for departure.
Welcome to day 8. Our tour guide posted signs like this every day on the bulletin board at each hotel, so incase we forgot what he told us, we always had a reference.
Our itinerary for the day says we're following the southern fringes of the European Alps to the vineyards, close to the shores of Lake Iseo.
The purple twins for the day, perked right up at the sound of wine, vineyard, and snacks. See how ready Jeanie and I are! We've shaken off the sleepy early morning start and have disembarked the coach to Que up for wine tasting.
But, before we get to drink the wine, this good looking guy wanted to talk to us. LOL He really did have all the ladies attention, as he described the process and location (see maps behind him), about this vineyard.
We continued on with the promise getting to taste the wine.
He even showed us how they rotate the bottles, explaining as the process continues the need to tip the bottle more comes into ply and these special wine racks help accomplish that task....even though they are manually turned...one bottle at a time.
Back upstairs, I spot some rather large Wine glasses!
The tasting room was quite pretty with flowers about
Glasses and bottles a plenty lined up....can we have a drum roll.
We enjoyed our tour and wine tasting at Contadi Castaldi, and now it's time to board the coach and make our way to Verona, O Romeo, Romeo wherefore art thou Rome?
