Meet your local expert at Wine Bar 5000, in central Venice, where your tasting will take place. Settle into your seat and learn about the Veneto region that surrounds Venice, known for its light whites and reds due to a milder climate.
Taste four different wines from the area and listen as your guide sheds light on the complex flavors at play in your glass.
Compare the flavors of the refosco red with the full-bodied marzemino, taste the light and bubbly Prosecco, and try popular Veneto whites such as manzoni bianco, friulano, or soave.
You'll also enjoy cicchetti, traditional Venetian snacks, to complement the wine. Each small dish is paired with a different wine and, while the options vary, you can expect delicacies such as fried zucchini flowers, baccala (traditional salt cod), or arancini (rice balls).
Afterward, feel free to stay in the bar to enjoy more Veneto wine and food at your own expense.
