Massimo was very informative and is able to speak well about all aspects of wine and wine making. Located in the center of the town and close to wonderful sites to visit. We stayed for dinner after the tasting and enjoyed it greatly. Massimo is a great host.
We had a great experience and learned much about Italian wine and regions that produce it.
This tasting was very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend it. This restaurant is a hole in the wall off of the main streets of Rome so come prepared with good directions. It was just the two of us at the tasting and our guide/owner of the restaurant, Massimo, was very informative, engaging, and overall a sincerely nice guy. He gave us solid background and a deeper understanding of the different types of wines we tried and the regions where they came from. We enjoyed the wine, atmosphere, and service so much that we decided to stay for dinner, and were glad we did! We each ordered pasta dishes and they were both fantastic. My boyfriend prefers beer to wine, and Massimo paired him with a delicious craft beer to go with dinner. Very, very good!
We did this tasting on our first evening in Rome. It was very low-key but fun. The wine bar where it's held is a neat little place tucked way on a side street (and we enjoyed the atmosphere so much that we went back there for wine on our own a few days later). The owner of the bar and the woman giving the class/tasting were both very friendly and knowledgeable. The wines and cheeses were delicious, as well!
Fantastic. Great wines, cheeses and company, held in a great wine bar in the back streets of Rome.
Ursula was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great way to spend an hour after sightseeing all day and before dinner. There were three Italian wines (2 whites and 1 red) and small food pairings. It takes place at a great little wine bar just off Campo dei Fiori. Recommended!
Everything we expected and more! The owner was passionate about his craft and very informative. The setting was small and intimate. The vino? Outstanding. Would do it again.
Brilliant and very informative. Tasted some lovely wines and cheeses and know what to buy in future.
I did this on my last night in Rome, and it was very enjoyable to relax with a small group and listen to the sommelier explain about the wine we were tasting. Excellent wine, cheeses, and salami.
One of my favourites - the somolier was so passionate about the wines you could help being caught up in his enthusiasm. He was excellent and even is you were not a wine lover when you went in, you will be when you come out. Excellent.
Massimo is very knowledgeable of the differnet wines. This was a great start for our vacation
This is well worth the price. Very knowledgeable guide. Enjoyable for both the novice and the those who "know" wine. Good location too.
I felt this was extremely good value for money and was held at a family run business. The owner not only had in-depth knowledge of the wines we discussed and tasted but also a passion about his business, wine and local Italian cuisine. It was an extremely refreshing trip and well worth the money!
If my boyfriend and I had more time then we would have visited again for an evening meal.
Definitely recommend this one!!!
the tasting was fun and very informative! good location to stay close-by for dinner
Of all the wine and cheese tasting I did on this holiday this was by far the best.
The lady was very knowledgeable about wine. She was passionate about it too.
Although she wasn't very friendly on reception because we were five minutes late the overall experience was good! Lovely winebar too!
Wonderful guide. And the bar where it is held was recently voted one of the top bars in Rome.Totally worth it!
Ended up being just the two of us with the guide. Very informative and the quide was great. Good wine. Apparently the Wine shop/restaurant owner does his own meal/wine tastings that I had read about so I was wishing we got to taste more of what he does with food and wine. Great location tucked away. Will definitely return.
Great experience . Our wine guide was clearly an expert in her field. As well as being very informative she was very patient and happy to be interrupted to take questions. At no time did we feel rushed and the whole experience was relaxing. Just the the ticket before going on to our meal later.
I was glad we booked the event since we learned a lot about Italian wines that we didn't know. The shop owner was helpful and good at explaining the wine areas but was a little too busy to devote his sole attention to us.
Difficult to find and could do with better instructions on the voucher but otherwise an interesting diversion. The sommelier new her stuff and both the wine and cheese that were tasted were local Lazio specialties. Great experience.
