What To Expect
The evening is staged in a specially designed tasting "library," set up for comfort, space, and tranquility. Enjoy the evening with your sommelier and host for the evening, 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 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 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.
Savor the meticulously selected food 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 and Food Tasting with Expert Sommelier will make this one of the best experiences and most enjoyable stories to share when you arrive home.
Tour ends around 19:30 outside the venue in Via degli Specchi, near Largo Argentina.
