Wine & Wellness in Venice

April 3,4,5 

Wine & Wellness Retreat with Gigglewater Prosecco


This year I am joining my girlfriend Catherine on her retreat In Venice and we would absolutely love you to join us - we always have a wonderful time in "Prosecco Land" and Venice, as she knows all the special people there who can show us the vineyards, tell us the stories, and share with us some of the best food and wine and secret locations going! 

Plus you get to see her magical Gigglewater Vineyards!


So please see our itinerary below and let us know asap if you would like to join as we need to confirm with the Spa Villa Hotel Ca di Paggio and also organise with our winery for talks, lunches and so on. 

You can arrive late Thursday night or leave Monday morning instead of Sunday night but the retreat itself is Friday midday to around 10.30pm Sunday night (you could leave before dinner if need be).
