Don’t miss this! Fantastic view, fantastic service and fantastic wine! It was a rainy day so we practically had the place to ourselves. It felt like an authentic and special experience. I can’t wait to go back.

The Winexperience is a wonderful cliff-side location to relax and enjoy the view, a flight of pleasing local wines and some tasty snacks (several photos are attached). We went here on a Monday afternoon in May with another couple. Our server was very knowledgeable and...enthusiastically recommended three local wines for us to sample. We greatly enjoyed the wines, the view of the sea and the laid-back nature of the experience. Like some of our fellow reviewers, we also had a bit of a hard time finding this location, but our walk was worth the effort. Our bottom line, if you are into drinking local wines in a beautiful local setting, the Winexperience is worth a try. If you found this review helpful and/or our photos helpful or pleasing, we hope you will click the “helpful/thank you” button. Those of us who write detailed reviews appreciate the feedback and it encourages us to write additional reviews for everyone’s consideration. Thank you.More

If ever in the beautiful little Italian village of Vernazza, you owe it to yourself and anyone with you to go to the Vernazza Winexperence. The location will blow you away, as this patio deck sits a couple of hundred feet above a pounding surf....Breathtaking ocean view, and a memorable place to be treated to some unbelievably good wines. Alessandro Villa is the Sommelier and with the passion he brings to introducing you to new and delicious wines you will feel like buying a case of each. A marvelous experience from start to finishMore

Lovely time at sunset while enjoying different wines. Selections were local, cheeses delicious and a perfect way to end the day after walking between towns.

As if the great wine wasn't enough, the view here is incredible. The atmosphere is calm with lovely background music and a view over the cliff looking out on the water. My husband and I did the Classic wine tasting and each wine we found...amazing. Alessandro personally came by and explained each wine before tasting it. After the wine, we tried out the rhubarb spritz which was unique and refreshing. We arrived at 5:30 pm and were able to be seated right away next to the railing with the best view. Our only regret was that we found this place on our last night in Vernazza. Had we found this sooner, we would have gone here every night for some wine before dinner!More

A lovely experience, after spending the day hiking the Cinque Terre trails and walking through the terraced vineyards. There were several packages of wines to taste. I naturally chose the local wine tasting package, 3 Cinque Terre whites for 20 Euro. Not cheap, but after...hiking through the terraced vineyards and seeing how difficult it is to harvest grapes, I was happy to support the local industry! The view was breathtaking and serene. Salute, CristinaMore

The service is terrible, the waitres has a bad attitude you make questions to him and he goes to the bar and laughs with the old lady that serves the wine. Very expensive for that kind of service... you have better options in vernazzaMore

Hello Ana, It seems to me that you maybe have not been at Vernazza Winexperience...we don't have a waitress, neither we have an old lady serving wine...but just in case our Waiter is very polite and detailed and would never laugh at a Client! Alessandro...More

The crowds in Vernazza were intimidating, and the humidity even more so. But once we found the Wine Experience we had a marvelous time. The sommelier was pleasant, knowledgeable, and the wine’s were local and great. We also got the cheese plate and the goat...cheese, after eating some, made if difficulty for me to walk it was so good. We highly recommend this place for those of you who really appreciate wines and want to learn more about the Cinque Terre local wines.More

I don't know as there were not any kids there when we visited. But since this is a wine tasting venue, I wouldn't recommend it as a family activity. They're only open from 5 - 8 p.m. and specialize in tasting curated wines... More

Hi, I'm not running this business! So unfortunately I have no idea if they are open in November. I've been there during my last trip to Italy and wrote a review because this was a great place.
