Cristian Fusco is extremely knowledgeable about wines from both Italy and the surrounding countries. This was the best wine tasting I have ever attended. Very informative and well worth attending

My husband and I visited Positano for the first time this summer. We had an amazing experience at the Tenuta San Francesco in Tramonti wine tour. The views were breathtaking, the wine was amazing, and the experience as a whole was perfect. Cristian is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Thank you, Cristian!

Our wine experience to Tenuta San Francesco in Tramonti was a highlight of our trip to Positano. We have done wine tastings and tours in wine regions of Australia, the USA, France and other regions of Italy, but this experience was something completely different. It was individualized and such a great experience because of that. Cristian is a sommelier at... More

We took a wine tour of Tenuta San Francesco with Cristian and we loved every second of it, from the start they come and pick you up from your hotel or villa on a Mercedes car which is very comfortable:) Cristian knowledge was amazing we learnt so much on this tour about the Amalfi Coast wines, it was a great...

We landed in Positano and decided to have a relaxed evening and tour the region with a private wine tasting. Christian arranged the tasting at Casa Mele next to the Eden Roc Hotel- high above the town. The wine experience that Christian offers is well presented and so entertaining. The restaurant prepared fresh meats, cheeses and bread to accompany the... More

These reviews sum it up perfectly. From the time we got picked up until the time we got dropped off, it was an amazing experience. The best part is tasting the wines and sitting around the table at the kitchen on the vineyard. Great food, great wine, great history, great people!

My husband and I did a private wine tasting with Cristian one afternoon in Positano, where we were staying. Having come from the Tuscany region prior to the Amalfi Coast, we were anxious to taste the wines of Campania. Cristian offered four bottles, along with cheeses and meats. He spent 1.5 hours explaining, educating, and tasting with us. It was... More

Before Swirl the Glass, all I knew about wine on the Amalfi Coast is that I really enjoyed the Aglianico varietal called Taurasi. So when I had the opportunity to take a wine tour with Cristian at Swirl the Glass, I was as excited to cultivate my wine knowledge as I was to taste it. (Okay, maybe I was a... More

If you're thinking about scheduling a wine tour in Campania, do yourself a favor and schedule it with Swirl The Glass. I have been on many wine tours in the past, all over Napa Valley and they are all very similar.......You walk around in a large group, tasting various wines in different barrels, from different grapes, etc. Although very fun...

Our family traveled throughout Italy for two weeks - but by far our favorite day was traveling with Cristian to the wonderful “Tenuta San Francesco Tramonti” winery. Cristian was beyond knowledgable about the various wines, and the family owned winery made us feel right at home. The family cooked us course after course of delicious authentic italian food to pair... More
