Further information
Pagus Wine Tours was born 15 years ago thanks to the idea of two friends (Davide Canteri e Alessandro Conato) when the Associazione Culturale Pagus was created and they started to promote the territory thanks distribution of brochures in the most important hotels of Verona. Starting idea was to show a famous wine territory (Amarone area) and the same history of the area. All the excursions were made with a stop in the most interesting art and historical places and no secondary was the visit to awesome landscapes showing the nature of the territory.
After many years of promotion of the area and just graduated as Tour Leaders and associated with Onav organization (wine assayers), in 2013 we created The Travel Agency named Pagus Wine Tours to have a specific organization about shared and private tours in the area with meeting point in the center of Verona city. We were the first travel agency operating on this way and promoting wine and its area of production.
Thanks to a big distribution of brochures in the hotels and in the Touristic Information Office (IAT), and due to the simple way to book through the website or asking to hotel or touristic office desk, the tours become very easy to have, and just in 2013 more than 800 guests were to visit and know different wines of Verona area.
Today Pagus Wine Tours bets on its great experience of the territory and leading tourists, mostly from abroad (North America and Canada, North Europe and UK, Australia and more...), having more than 2000 peolple and more than 400 tours in these last years, creating same time a great business for wine makers and restaurants, and giving to the hotels a nice service for their guests.
Pagus Wine Tours was partecipating to different conferences and events (Workshop Valpolicella, Magnalonga of Pedemonte, the last this November Paesaggi Italiani in Cividale of Friuli).
Pagus was finally rated on Lonely Planet, one between the most important world travel magazines in the world.
