Wine tasting was a really great experience. Me and my friend booked this spontaneously whilst on a trip to Milan. The table was set up with bread, crisps and a range of wine glasses. A board was brought out with local cheese and ham to pair with wines. There was 5 of us at the wine tasting in total. It was a very easy going experience, not too intense at all. The 5 different wines were described, and then we were invited to try them. We were then left to chat, drink and eat. The wines were amazing, best i’ve ever tried ! (I forgot to take pictures because we were all chatting and enjoying everything too much!) Had a really great time and met some lovely people. The shop/bar was lovely and the staff were welcoming. Purchased a lovely Prosecco from the shop at the end. Would 100% recommend this to couples, friends or solo travellers who want to meet new people.

This was a very wonderful experience that my friends and I could share on Lake Como. This is a great way to spend a chilly day. We were served 4 healthy glasses of wine, as well as many cheeses and meats to accompany them. I wrote in my reservation that I was vegetarian and they accommodated me with a vegetarian lasagna. The English guide was extremely knowledgable and tailored the experience to what we were interested in. Also gave tips for us to explore Como for the day. Was a great way to spend the day and learn more about the viniculture of Italy.
