What You Can Expect

Wine and Food Tasting with an Expert Sommelier in Rome

Sample some of Italy's finest and best loved wines on this wine and food tasting experience in Rome

Your food- and wine-tasting experience in Rome provides a delicious opportunity to gain insight into Italy’s long winemaking heritage from an industry pro—your trained sommelier guide. After meeting at a location in central Rome, head to the wine-tasting library of a nearby restaurant and wine store, where you’ll be delighted by the cozy ambience of the room lined with books and bottles of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and fine wine.

Grab your wine glass and gather around the table as your sommelier shares information about Italian wine and how it fits into the country’s beloved culture. During your tasting session, you’ll enjoy samples of six regional wine varietals, including the well-known Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Rosso di Montalcino and Barolo, considered some of Italy’s finest wines. Each wine is paired with Italian snacks like salami, ham, mozzarella cheese and bruschetta.

While you sip and eat, learn how to distinguish different flavors and aromas and how the food enhances certain aspects of the wines. Your wine knowledge continues to increase as you dive into more detail, such as how to discern if a wine is standard or complex. You may also ask your sommelier any questions before your experience ends outside the wine library. See the Itinerary for a sample menu of food.

This was a perfect private wine class. The Sommelier was super personable and spoke perfect English she was from California. It was so great to learn about the different grapes and their regions and what they paired best with different foods. We tasted 6 wines total from white to red and prosecco.

The experience was very nice with a smaller group we were able to ask questions about the wines and the guide was very informative. He clearly has a passion for the wines that he was presenting and very knowledgeable about them.
