Meeting point with the Sommelier in the center of Verona. Start of the walking itinerary that will wind through the lesser-known streets of the city passing through the Arena and then into the district that was once dedicated to the processing of wool. A stop is a must in front of the signs of the oldest shops that tell of the past and traditions.
We will reach a historic Osteria where we will make the first stop for a tasting of two glasses of local wine paired with typical cold cuts and cheeses. The tavern is a point of reference for anyone who wants to get away from the more touristy routes, savoring the taste of tradition.
The sommelier will explain and tell the characteristics of the wines, the territory of origin and the combinations with the local cuisine.
At the end, the route will take you to the ancient Roman forum until you reach one of the oldest places dedicated to wine and the unique flavors of this land.
It is in this place where the second stop will be made and there will be a tasting of the most renowned wine of Valpolicella: Amarone! The glass of Amarone will be paired with some cicchetti. In the Osteria you will be enveloped by a unique atmosphere and if you are lucky you will be able to meet the local elders who drink, joke and sing.
Inside the Osteria is “hidden” one of the oldest cellars where thousands of local and international bottles of wine are kept. You will be accompanied to visit this unique and suggestive cellar that will give the perception of being inside a bottle!
