With Katya we had this 1/2 day very engaging experience in knowing the goodness of local products and good wine. Except I would say ... even Katya's professionalism, very experienced and prepared. He immediately made us love Aosta.

This tasting is recommended. Everything is very good and presented by enthusiasts. The guide is very friendly and explains everything we want in French.
