A wine experience like no other! Wine is an important part of Italian culture. At VinoRoma wine tastings/seminars we give you the key to understanding Italian wines and your taste so you can continue exploring on your own, too. Not intimidating, stuffy or confusing - a lot of fun and very insightful! Nice side effect: you will learn a lot about food, too!Drink wine. Not too much. Mostly Italian.

If you know nothing about wine or if you're already well-versed in all kinds of Italian wines, Hande Leimer's Vino Roma "My Italians" tasting is a fantastic experience. I've been three or four times with visiting friends and family members, and the tasting is fun, informative and, of course, tasty! Hande herself is incredibly knowledgable about wines with, I believe,... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome! Maurizio was interesting and informative; we left feeling much more knowledgeable about italian wines and wines in general! Highly recommend!

We brought our family of 6 to this fantastic wine tasting which suited all of us perfectly, young and old.... more experienced and novices... The early evening was perfectly led by Maurizio who expertly helped all of us along through our six different wines and regions of Italy. This was a great evening and experience for all of us, as...

Initially I was disappointed that the leader wasn't Italian, but we really enjoyed it anyway. He was great, very knowledgeable, and personable. The setting is charming and we met people from all over the world. Be aware that this is not a wine-food pairing, so you may want to eat something beforehand.

So glad you enjoyed the tasting! Just want to note that you attended the My Italians tasting which is clearly described online as having no food (just bread to cleanse the palate) because it is our more technical tasting concentrating on the characteristics of the wines. For a wine tasting with food (and studying food-wine pairings) try our wine &... More

If you love wine, you'll love this, and if you like wine you'll love this, and if you hate wine you'll still love Vino Roma. It was fantastic, I learned a great deal about Italian Wines in the MyItalians tasting session. I thought the price was reasonable too. There was just three people there for the tasting, my girlfriend and... More

A friend and I took a half-day, customized foodie tour with Hande. We visited bakeries, salumerias and cheese shops in the historical old town. Hande provided us with an unparalleled insider's view of the food scene by focusing on delicacies from the region and by weaving in historical facts and personal anecdotes about the food and the people who make...

Very nice experience with Maurizio. We had a great time with him explaining about wine appreciation techniques and wine habits. The ambience is cool, old wine cellar, minimal decoration for you to concentrate on wines exclusively. Good job!!

I am a solo traveler and was interested in the Italian Wines wine tasting since I love Italian wines. Hande was great and although they wouldn't hold a wine tasting for one person, they did let me know when others had signed up for the tasting so that I could join them. It was fabulous. Unfortunately, the name of the... More

Thank you for your nice words, Maurizio will be very happy. And thank you also for your appreciation of our wine selection, we do feel it is our duty as wine educators to expose wine drinkers to more interesting wines than the already well known ones. Hope you can find at least some of these in your hometown. More

This course is worth the €50. The facilitator was friendly and knowledgeable and I left with some enhanced vocabulary and new knowledge about Italian wines. Testing your new skills is soon to follow. Just to note the wines offered (Italian classics) were very good quality so the 50 is a good price. And last the street itself is very pleasant... More

We are glad you enjoyed the tasting. It is nice to hear you appreciated the very good quality wines we use at our tastings, and think they are worth the price. But we would like to stress that the price our guests are paying is mostly for the vocabulary, knowledge and skills gained. Keep on practicing! More

My wife and I went to the My Italians food tasting hosted by Maurizio. This is a serious wine tasting which takes place in a quiet basement room a bit off the beaten track. If you're looking for nightlife and wine bar atmosphere then this won't be for you. We had the chance to taste a diverse range of Italian... More

Thank you for your on-point assesment that our wine tasting has nothing to do with nightlife nor winebar atmosphere. Would just like to correct the information about the tasting room - the tastings are held in the wine studio at street level, only our wine cellar is, well, in the cellar/basement :) More

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
