Dejan is worth the trip but the entire experience was fantastic. From the people we met to the winery and its owners it was a little step back to enjoy simple pleasures of good people, good food and especially, good wine.

It’s only maybe a 30 minute ride to the castle. It is a beautiful drive to see the countryside away from the city!

Hello, I believe they do the tour every day but you do need to book at least the day before, 2 days before would be better. Enjoy Italy, it’s wonderful.
