What you'll do

Explore the magical cobbled streets of Rome with a Local Host who is passionate about sharing the very best of the region’s wines with you. Discover Rome’s wine culture and learn how to pair wine with food and sample six Italian red and white wines, each accompanied by Roman specialities and artisan local produce. 

Stroll through the city and stop off at unique venues, where your hand-picked Host will choose a different wine for you to try based on your tastes and preferences. Whether you're at a classic wine bar, an underground wine cellar, a buzzing food market, an al fresco terrace or a specialist cheese shop, you’ll discover the diversity of the region’s wines and taste how good they are when paired with the right food! 

As well as wines, taste artisan produce which are specialities of the region, and learn the basics of how the locals choose the perfect wine to accompany them. From Frascati to Sangiovese to Trebbiano, take your tastebuds on a journey through the best wines of the region. 

On this experience, you’ll sample delicious wines and learn a about how they’re made, but your experience won’t feel like a typical wine tasting experience reserved for connoisseurs; instead your Host will help you understand how drinking wine is part of the culture here.
