Detailed Description

Detailed Description

Take a wine voyage around Italy without ever leaving the heart of Rome with this one-of-a-kind wine tasting experience. The evening is staged in a specially designed tasting “library,” allowing you the comfort, space, and tranquility to maximize your interaction with the sommelier and other guests. This dedicated tasting room is lined with books, olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and wine bottles – a perfect and unique atmosphere for uninterrupted enjoyment.

Your sommelier and host for the evening is an industry expert, sought out by wine makers and cited in magazines, documentaries, and professional blogs. He will give you his undivided attention throughout the two-hour tasting as he helps you explore the aromas and flavors of some of Italy’s best loved wines and some of the wine industry’s best kept secrets.

How do you know if a wine is standard or complex? What is going on when a wine critic says they detect notes of “Afghan roses” and “Russian leather”? How does one get “off the beaten path” and discover a new favorite? Whether you are a first-time taster or seasoned wine connoisseur, there is something new to discover for everyone here. Your guide will answer these questions and more, teaching you how wine affects the different tasting centers of the tongue, why famous doesn’t always mean good, and what you can expect from the various regions around Italy. He’ll also fill you in on some of the bold wine-makers pursuing excellence over profit, and why he’s passionate about knowing them and their vineyards personally.

Although wine is the star, you won’t want to underestimate the meticulously selected foods that will accompany each glass. Rich cheeses, succulent cured ham, and delicate salami are just a few of the regional delicacies you’ll taste, each with its own history and fame. The attention to detail and quality in this mix of wine, food, and fun on our unique Regional Italian Wine & Food Tasting with Expert Sommelier will make this one of the best experiences and most enjoyable stories to share when you arrive home.

Rome Wine and Food Tasting, Adult (Excellent)

"This was an excellent evening. Food and wine were fantastic. I learned more than I thought I would and how many grapes and regions there are within Italy. Also they are generous with their wine tasting. It was one of the highlights of our trip. So much we went back to the restaurant the following night for dinner and wine tasting again. Highly recommend you add this to your trip. The sommelier was hilarious and very easy to ask questions too. He helped us with our dinner reservation as the restaurant is in high demand."
