What You Can Expect

Veneto Wine and Dinner Pairing in Venice

Enjoy your dinner and wine experience in Venice!

Make your own way to one of Venice’s internationally acclaimed restaurants, just a short walk from St Mark’s Square or San Marco water bus stop. Take a seat at your private table, sip on your aperitif, and then sit back and relax as your evening of classic Veneto food and wine commences.

After ordering your food, chat with your sommelier about wine in the region and select four different glasses of wine to complement the flavors of each course. The Alps shelter Veneto from northern Europe’s extreme climate, creating near-perfect conditions for growing the grapes that yield the region's legendary crisp whites and smooth reds.

Like the menu, the wine featured at the restaurant often varies, but the options available to you will always include some esteemed Veneto varietals. Linger over full-bodied reds such as cecchetto cabernet sauvignon, sip a light and fragrant Valdobbiadene white, or treat yourself to a glass of Prosecco Superiore.

After your meal finishes, enjoy a coffee. If you wish, stay in the restaurant bar to enjoy more Veneto wine at your own expense. The full 4-course meal typically lasts around 2.5 hours.

Sample Menu:
First course (choice of one):
  • Venetian-style sardines and shrimps with onions
  • Veal carpaccio with fresh basil, Parmesan cheese and spices
Second course (choice of one):
  • Thin noodles with shrimps and zucchini
  • Bigoli with duck and a rich sauce
Main course (choice of one):
  • Fillet of seabass with fresh basil, julienne of pan-fried leeks and pine nuts
  • Sliced beef entrecôte with grilled vegetables
Dessert (choice of one):
  • Nougat semifreddo (semi-frozen mousse) with wine sauce
  • Soft, lemon ice cream with wild berry compote

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

This wine and dinner pairing was a highlight of our trip to Venice. We had a wonderful meal, paired with 5 different wines. The sommelier took lots of time to give information about the grapes and growing regions of each wine we tasted. He even emailed us a detailed list of everything we sampled. The food was excellent, and the restaurant staff was friendly and attentive. We're definitely glad we booked this tour.
