Group Tour - Valtellina Wine Experience & Bernina Express - Excursion from Varenna

Availability: Wednesday*

Duration: 10.5 hours, 9am - 7:30pm

*This tour operates from April to October.

Your first stop will be at a small historic Valtellina winery for an unforgettable wine tasting experience. The winemaker Paolo carries on the family tradition with his sons, Luca and Matteo, respecting the long aging time of Nebbiolo. This is the only winery in the area that uses the precious antioxidant active ingredients of grapes to produce anti-aging creams, based on red wine.
 
Lunch will be served in a Michelin listed restaurant famous for keeping the ancient land flavors in its dishes. You will taste the typical local dishes: Pizzoccheri (pasta made with buckwheat flour, topped with Casera cheese and melt with butter, potatoes and cabbage) and the Sciatt, delicious cheese-filled buckwheat fritters.

After lunch your driver will take you to the Tirano train station and you will hop on the Bernina Express train for an amazing 2-hour trip up the mountains to admire the glacier and to reach Saint Moritz. Once here, you will have free time for shopping in the old town before your driver takes you back to Lake Como.

Meeting point will be at a central location. Details will be provided in final documents.
