Tours & Tastings

mignonFood Tours

I guide visitors to Rome around the best markets and specialty food stores in different neighborhoods of the city, most of them far off the beaten tourist track. Food tours are full of delicious food samples, from gelato to a porchetta on pizza bianca and from artisanal cheeses to craft beer, while laced with (historical) anecdotes. We will meet local artisans, vendors and farmers on the way. The focus of the tours is on local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients, as well as traditional Roman dishes and recipes. For those with a special interest in wine, we can talk more in depth about the Italian approach to wine and food pairings.

I lead tours for vino roma, a leading Roman food and wine association. There are tours almost every day, in different neighborhoods of the city. Food tours can be held in English, Italian, German and Dutch. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line for more information!

corksWine Tastings

Italy has an almost dizzying variety of wines to offer. Every region produces wine: how can you figure out what types of wines best suit your palate? Discover it during one of the fun, educational wine tastings at wine studio vino roma. The “Wine & Cheese Lunch” focuses on Italian wine and food pairings, while the “My Italians” tasting gives an overview of Italian wines and their unique regional characteristics. Saturday afternoons are reserved for “Sparkling Saturdays”, which spotlight Italian sparkling wines. Team members rotate.
