    We've done wine tastings all of the world and this one was OK. The three wines were a white that was not well loved by the 6 guests, a rose and a red. I would have preferred 2 whites and 2 reds and skip the rose. Plenty of food to try with the tastings but only 1 that went with red wine. Our host was knowledgeable, but didn't get to know us past the fact that we are all Americans. Then she left without waiting for us to finish our wine/food and conversations so we could tip her, which we were ready to do. Company was pleasant and location by the Colosseum was convenient, but I've like other wine tastings better.

    Absolutely fantastic experience bought by the kids for my husbands 50th Birthday celebration in Rome. Luca was the perfect host, and his knowledge of wine was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this as part of your holiday. Were planning a trip around the wine regions of Italy to put our new found knowledge to the test. Thank you Luca.

    Fantastic wine tasting in the heart of Rome!
    We arrived half an hour late but our sommelier Luca was waiting for us in the restaurant still. The restaurant was cosy and accommodating for the tasting. Luca was very intuitive and helpful guiding us through each wine and pairing. Highly recommended!

    This wine and cheese tasting was fun and informative. We had a fantastic time! Lucca was fantastic.

    This is not just a Wine and Cheese tasting, it was a real education on how and why wines are paired. I learned a lot from Luca our sommelier on the DNA of grapes and how and why they interact to certain foods in different ways. I used to like to drink wine but now with the knowledge supplied by Luca I relay enjoy it at a totally new level.

    Nice end to a great vacation. Sampled 3 wines and experienced how each tasted with various meat and cheeses. The trick is in the color matching!

    What a great evening with fun people and a great host. Learned a lot about wine and cheese and and even some great tips on what to see and do. Especially nice was that there was no push or even an offer to purchase anything - this is NOT a wine-tasting where they are really just a front to sell you a bottle. The location is also close to the Colosseum and the Forum area so was nice to have an evening stroll after the event. A great relaxing evening I highly recommend.

    We scheduled this event as a way to end start time is approx 6pm our day in Rome. Our local host for this event was Luca. He is very engaging and shared much about the wine industry in Italy as background for the wines/cheeses/meats that were used for the tasting. He did a great job of answering questions from our small group 6 total and used those to help us to better understand how pairing the correct wine and food together can enhance the enjoyment of both. You meet at a small restaurant/wine bar in the center section of Rome and the event lasts a little over a hour. Highly recommended for those open to learning more about Italian wine.

    Really nice experience and value for money. The sommelier Luca was very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended as a afternoon/ evening activity with friends or family.
