About Rome Gourmet Food and Wine Tasting
Head to a gourmet wine bar in Rome, endorsed by celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, and sample local delicacies and fine Lazio wines during a 2.5-hour tasting session. Try beautiful cheeses, locally cured meats and six different wines while learning about the regional cuisine from the bar’s owner, a sommelier and your host. If your taste buds are tempted for more, upgrade to spend an extra hour in the bar after your tasting session, enjoying a classic Roman pasta dish and then dessert.
Numbers are limited to eight on this small-group experience, ensuring you’ll enjoy personalized attention from your host.
Meet your friendly host inside a one of Rome’s best enotecas (wine bars), roughly halfway between Piazza Venezia and Campo di Fiori, and then sit down at an intimate table with just your small group of eight.
Recently awarded a seal of approval by American chef Anthony Bourdain, the establishment is fast gaining a reputation as the best gourmet eatery in town. Meet the charismatic owner and hear about regional cuisine throughout the Lazio region, and then learn about local wines from the bar's expert sommelier.
Sip on six different glasses of Lazio wines, and discover how their flavors are complemented by food. Italians rarely drink without eating, so follow the lead of your host and savor each sip alongside pungent cheeses and wafer-thin, silky-smooth cured meats.
Whet your appetite for more? Upgrade to enjoy a further two courses, giving you a full meal. After your tasting session, your host will serve a classic Roman pasta dish of Carbonara (a creamy sauce made with pancetta, eggs and Parmesan) or Amatriciana (a spicy tomato-based sauce with pancetta and chilli), followed by cheese fondue and fresh-baked cookies.
