DESCRIPTION . Rome wine tasting is a GREAT guaranteed experience offered in a traditional Enoteca (wine bar) located in the heart of Rome, Italy. You and your family or friends will learn how to drink, taste the wine and enjoy it as best you can.
An inviting selection of some typical regional cheeses, salami and hams, smoked fish and a big choice of warm homemade dishes will complete the wine tasting experience.
We also share you some information about the history of the Roman Countryside. You will learn that in the 70’s in the Lazio area there were 75.000 hectares of vineyards, much more then you find today in Tuscany and Piedmont. While today it's extended just in 26.000 hectares.
Probably you don't know that once the vineyards where in the city centre fo Rome, while today they still in the historical part of Castelli Romani, in the soil they have this particularly richness of potassium and phosphor and the favour and micro climate has a mitigating action from the lakes give side al requirements for the vineyards.
Our Wine and Food Tasting takes you to a historical Enoteca where we serve you three wines that tell you the story of the viticulture of the Roman countryside.
Two whites and one red will be served with cheese and cold cuts to make you study the techniques to match wine and food.
After the Tasting you will be able to recognize the differences between colors and flavors and the areas where the wines are produced.
