Raft & Wine

Evening descent of the Adige to Verona with 3 wine tastings

Discovering the river and the architectural beauties of Verona from an unusual point of view! A particular descent that will also be an opportunity to taste Veronese wines in the three stages of the aperitif rafting on the Adige.

Raft & Wine con Fasoli Gino

The navigation begins at our base at the Bottagisio Sport Center where the first aperitif is offered with cheese platters and salami from Malga Vazzo combined with Garganega Brut “La corte del pozzo” from the Fasoli Gino winery in Colognoli ai Colli (VR).


After 45 minutes of navigation, we stop in the middle of the river in front of the marvelous arches of the Scaligero bridge to taste the Borgoletto Soave DOC. Finally, having reached the eighteenth-century river Customs House in the Filippini area, the third tasting is offered – Bardolino DOC “La Corte del Pozzo” accompanied by some snacks. It will also be possible to visit the Adige Museum housed inside the building.

An itinerant rafting aperitif that combines the beauty of Verona seen from the river with the tasting of local wines in unique locations that can only be reached from the river. All enriched with our tales of the city’s river history.
For navigation we use rafting boats, each of which can accommodate a maximum of 12 people in addition to the F.I.Raft river guide.
Participants will be provided with a life jacket and, for those who wish, a paddle. At the height of the Ponte della Vittoria and the wonderful stone bridge, dating back to Roman times, participants will be able to experience the little thrill of passing over the waves of the river.
