Rome Wine Tour Description

Embark on a tantalizing journey of Italy’s wine country without ever leaving Rome on this 2-hour, luxury wine and food tasting experience. With an expert sommelier leading the session, learn about Italy’s most prestigious grapes and sample mouthwatering local delicacies in the atmospheric wine tasting library of a famous Rome restaurant and wine store. Whether you’re a beginner or a well-seasoned connoisseur, get a unique perspective of Italy’s rich wine-making heritage from an industry pro.

Meet your host for the evening, a highly trained sommelier and industry expert, on the steps of San Carlo ai Catinari church in the heart of Rome. Together with your group of no more than 18, follow your sommelier to a nearby wine tasting library. Lined with books, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and, of course, bottles of fine wine, this intimate and specially designed room offers the perfect setting for your 2-hour Italian tasting.

Pick up a wine glass and mingle with your fellow ‘tasters’ as you take your place around the large, square table. Listen to your sommelier talk about the country’s winemaking heritage and learn about its place in Italian history and culture while the first of the wine samples is being poured.

Throughout the course of the evening, sample six of Italy’s finest and best loved wine varieties, including Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Rosso di Montalcino and barolo, each paired with delicious regional specialties such as succulent cured ham, salami, cheese and a selection of crostini (small slice of grilled or toasted bread with toppings). Savor the delicate bouquet of flavors in each wine as they dance on your tongue, and pick up tips from your sommelier on how to identify the varying aromas and ingredients. You’ll also learn how the dishes highlight different notes in the wine.

As the tasting draws on, discover how to tell if a wine is standard or complex, find out about the tongue’s different tasting centers, and take the opportunity to ask your sommelier any questions that you may have.

Your experience concludes outside the wine library, leaving you perfectly placed to enjoy dinner in central Rome, or put your new-found knowledge to the test over a glass of wine.


Highlights of this tour include:
  • 2-hour luxury wine and food tasting experience in Rome
  • Savour six Italian wine varieties and learn how to identify the subtle notes and aromas with an expert sommelier
  • Enjoy tantalizing local cuisine including rich cheese and cured meats
  • Mingle with your group in an intimate, specially designed wine tasting library
  • Discover fascinating facts about Italy’s best loved wine varieties and famous gastronomic delights

Our Guides Were Wonderful.

Both James and Isabella were wonderful guides on our tours. They were very knowledgeable and made the experience more meaningful. My husband and I will definitely recommend Eternal City tours to anyone who is visiting.

Holy Doors Jubilee tour

Our tour guide was Blitch Vizioli...what an amazing man...the tour was everything we had hoped for...we travelled from Australia to come to Rome for this trip of a life to time to experience the Jubilee of Mercy and the Closing of the Holy Doors of the Basilica of St. Peter's...nothing was too much for Blitch..he was well versed in the Catholic faith...no questions were out of his depth he went above and beyond to ensure that no stone was left unturned...spiritually this tour was everything and then much more because of his efforts...this day was the highlight of our trip...he exceeded our expectations by supplying us with tickets to the mass on Sunday that he obtained from the Swiss guards ...we are truly in his debt..thank you again I would have no hesitations in dealing with this company on future tours...absolutely amazing

6/5 Stars!

Nothing too much can be said of this company. When everything is just so perfect. I am quite a particular traveller. I like things to go MY way. Eternal did exactly just that. I wanted to have a fully custom, fully flexible tour, they provided it. They sent two super knowledgable guides, that followed our pace. Often tour are very single dimension. They talk you listen, I guess bcs of my small sized group it became they talk, I ask, they answer. Tom replied my emails super fast too! I like that. I feel that I am being taken care of. Like the title says: 6 of 5 stars. To other Travellers, look no more, these are the right guides for Rome and the Vatican.

Like Having a Personalized High Quality PBS Tour

We booked a Tour that included a visit to all four major basilicas. Our guide was James Good and my wife and I were absolutely delighted and thrilled with the quality, care and professionalism we experienced with Eternal City Tours. James was extremely knowledgeable and more importantly was very friendly and personable throughout the tour. As someone who lives in Rome, he shared not only his encyclopedic knowledge of the basilicas but also insights to living in Rome. We made a coffee stop at Panella l'Arte del Pane where we were treated like friends hanks to a James' connections. He also gave us a number of very useful recommendations to improve our visit and stay in Rome. We enjoyed spending time with him and commend Eternal City Tours for delivering on their promise of a high quality experience.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

The best way to see Rome

Having been to Rome a few times before, our group was looking to tour Villa D'Este, Hadrian's Villa and the Catacombs of St. Callixtus with guides who offered a truly Christian perspective. And this is exactly what we found with Eternal City Tours.
Our group of 10 came from diverse backgrounds, but everyone was riveted by the fountains of information flowing in our direction.Our guides, Blitch and James were not only marvelously well-informed and passionate, they were also extremely patient!
I strongly recommend Eternal City Tours for those who want to delve more deeply into the wonders of Rome.

Chad was the best we've ever had!

Chad Deffler was the best guide we have ever had. We have traveled quite a lot in recent years and used a lot of guides. Chad was able to explain and answer all questions with absolute accuracy and clarity. His knowledge of Rome, religious history, and philosophy was incredible. All this was done in a manner that kept the tour interesting.

Our guide Matthew was fantastic!

Hello,
Holy Doors Tour - 26th September 2016
Our guide Matthew was fantastic. He went the extra mile to explain and show us everything.
He didn't rush us and gave us ample opportunity to ask questions.
Many thanks to him, Tour of the Holy Doors was our reason to visit Rome and he made it all worthwhile.
We will definitely book with Eternal City tours again and request Matthew to be our Guide.
One in a million. Please let him know we appreciated his company and knowledge and hope to meet him again with Eternal City Tours.
