We will leave Verona and after a few minutes of driving through the countryside south of the city, we will arrive in the area of Isola della Scala, the "capital" of Vialone Nano Veronese rice.

 

We will take a walk to some natural springs and to an ancient noble villa, witness of the Venetian agricultural settlement, and we will stop in the rice fields to see closely how rice is grown and irrigated.

We will reach an ancient rice mill where we will learn about the traditional methods of processing the rice. At the shop it will be possible to buy rice, rice flours and gluten-free bakery products.

 

Finally, we will have a tasty lunch with the typical risotto "all'Isolana" (meat based) and risotto with Amarone, and followed by rice based desserts and coffee. Water and wine are included.
