A lot of people like to drink wine. Unfortunately, very few people know what to focus on with their nose and palate in order to get a glimpse of what's in the glass! This is exactly what we would like to bring you closer to in this setup tasting. You leave the wine cellar with a whole new attitude towards crying. Just one example...where does the red color in red wine come from? Can you make white wine from red wine grapes? What are tannins and how do they get into wine? What are the different fermentations and when are they used, etc...

Together we experience a little journey into the world of wine, a kind of short setup course. We taste a wide variety of wines from Italy, especially from Calabria and Sicily, as well as Apulia. We will explain you the main characteristics of the wine, as well as the accessories (glasses, corks, production, etc.) and we will smell related essences by Jean Lenoir (Nez du Vin). We eat selected Italian antipasti from the best production. At the end there are various liqueurs and digestifs, so that everyone can move on again happily and full. A lot of fun and conviviality is our main goal...

    Roman made the night fun and educational. Tucked in an underground cellar, the venue in itself is interesting. My friends and I enjoyed all the wine served, plus the tasty meat, grapes and cheeses that goes well with it. We had experienced smelling different aromas that go with the wine that we had to guess! Something different from other wine tasting. A visit to Zurich should always come with Italian wine tasting! Thanks, Roman!

    Fantastic experience that I will recommend to anyone travelling the area. Roman was very informative and also made the tour extremely fun. It was a great way to learn something new in a really cool place while having a great time. The wine was outstanding, along with the food. Do not miss this. Thanks Roman

    4 friends and I did this together and Roman was awesome at engaging with us while teaching us a lot about Italian wines. The quantities were far more generous than any other wine tour we have been on. Couldn’t recommend more! You’re the man Roman
