Overview

Discover the wines of Italy’s Veneto region with a 1-hour tasting in an enoteca in Venice. Meet your local expert at the wine bar and learn about the long winemaking history of Veneto, which dates back to the Roman Empire. Taste several different Veneto varietals served with house-made appetizers as you enjoy the social atmosphere of this small-group tour.
  • 1-hour evening wine tasting at a traditional enoteca in Venice
  • Sample four different types of Veneto wine
  • Taste whites such as friulano or soave as well as a Prosecco
  • Compare reds like refosco or marzemino
  • Enjoy traditional Venetian cicchetti to complement the wine
  • Learn all about the Veneto winemaking region and the various characteristics of the different wines
Meet your local expert at Enoteca Estro on Calle Crosera, where your 1-hour tasting will take place. Settle into your seat and learn about the Veneto region that surrounds Venice, known for its light whites and reds due to a milder climate.
Taste four different wines from the area and listen as your guide sheds light on the complex flavors at play in your glass.
Compare the flavors of the refosco red with the full-bodied marzemino, taste the light and bubbly Prosecco, and try popular Veneto whites such as manzoni bianco, friulano, or soave.
You'll also enjoy cicchetti, traditional Venetian snacks, to complement the wine. Each small dish is paired with a different wine and, while the options vary, you can expect delicacies such as fried zucchini flowers, baccala (traditional salt cod), or arancini (rice balls).
Afterward, feel free to stay in the bar to enjoy more Veneto wine and food at your own expense.

Awesome selection although we did not have someone discussing the wines to us which we like.
Great selection of wines and finger food!

I really enjoyed the location for this wine tasting it was a beautiful, modern bar with a variety of wines. The price for this tasting is very high for the 4 small tastes and 2 nibbles. We were attended to quickly, however we were hoping to get more information about each varietal, vineyard, etc. and did not get much beyond the name of the wine. We were a little rushed in order to accommodate the dinner time reservations it would have been nice to linger longer. I highly recommend visiting Estro, though I'd pay individually for each pour/snack for a better overall value.

I am pretty sure anyone could show up at the bar and ask for a sampling of wines - there was no group and no real experience. The wines were okay but i wouldn't do this again.

There was no one there to meet us at the designated time. We called the on the page and the person on the phone just told us to go inside. The place was closed and the doors locked. They called the bar and a lady opened the door. She had us go sit and wait for about 15 min, while she did other things and attended other patrons walking in. The tasting consisted of 4 wines, 2 white/2red and 1 bite to go with each one. No explanation other than if it was dry or sweet, and that whites go with fish, reds with meat. After the wine was poured2 at a time, the lady told us she was leaving us to look at the bottles... Most of the time, we were left just sitting there. I, personally, do not recommend this wine tasting experience. There are so many other bars with better wine, food, service, and personality. Not worth the money and time.

We felt there was a switch and bait element to our evening which turned out to be Four glasses of wine at a bar in Venice. No one met the group at the appointed meeting point and two members of the party never found the tiny bar, which would not give any value for the 100 .

Really good food, cute atmosphere, not difficult to find and really nice staff. Unfortunately we were the only ones there and did not receive too much information on the wines and dishes served. Otherwise- really delicious food and worth staying for dinner afterward!

Very enjoyable. The restaurant was a little out of the way but we enjoyed seeing a new area of Venice. We tasted 4 wines, including one white, one prosecco and two reds. All glasses of wine were generous (about 100ml). The accompanying tapas were delicious and filling. We were there about 2 hours.
