Food plays a great role in understanding a wine and a place. So it was only natural that we wanted to show you more about it.
Being sommeliers, our life centers around marrying wine with food. In Italy wine is never drank without food, so understanding food is the first step in understanding the wine. And you will see that the whole country and its people make more sense, too, once you understand the food culture - the growing, the buying, the preparation and: Eating! Thus, you will understand the culture of Rome and Italy through its food.
Our food tour has a different itinerary for each day of the week (see below for details; and yes, that includes Sunday - let yourself be surprised). The common point of every day is visiting the right market, the food shops, the cafes, the gelateria that offer their best. Where the very discerning locals go themselves. Where we have been shopping for years. Each tour includes a wine or beer tasting (choice will depend on weekday and area).
