    The wine tasting experience was personal, just me and my husband, which was lovely as it was our wedding anniversary. At first we was a little unsure what to expect as we’d never done anything like this before, the wine shop owner was quiet and laid back so we can understand some people not warming to him, however we did and he was brilliant, funny and knowledgeable about the wines and we really enjoyed the experience, the 4 sparkling wines that we had were very good and we ended up buying a bottle. We also had a little plate of meat, cheese, olives and breads. Time wise, short and sweet but just right. We would do this again, thank you

    Excellent 1 to 1 session with Stefano. Superb selection of prosecco for tasting and great knowledge and information shared from the host. Very intimate surroundings in the wine ship and really sets the tone. Would highly recommend and also excellent value for money

    This was a really great experience! The wine shop was lovely - cosy and authentic. Our host Marco was knowledgeable, kind, interesting and friendly, and we had a fab time. We got 4 glasses of prosecco each, a plate of snacks (crackers, meat and cheese), and lots of information about Venice and prosecco. Definitely worth booking! Thank you Marco! X
