“Wine Tasting Experience of a Lifetime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

Not only does Alessandro's location provide incredible views of the Vernazza coastline, he also serves some nice local wines. He pairs each with an appropriate appetizer. It was a very fun experience. It is a must stop in Vernazza.

“The most amazing thing we did in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

This was the most incredible experience that we had in 10 days in Italy. Alessandro is an absolute master of wine who had us taste - honest to god - the best wines we've ever had in our lives. Throughout the rest of Italy we were actually disappointed because nothing else actually stood up to the Cinque Terre semi-dry whites, the Barberosa reds, and a special artisinal vermouth (Del Professore) that all four of us agreed we would probably kill for. The wine comes with an amazing selection of robust cheeses like grana padano, dark chocolates, dried apricots, incredible shortbread cookies that are something out of Willy Wonka (they literally change flavor five or six times as you chew) and, for the adventurous, local sardines. The view is to die for - you're on a bright and modern balcony overlooking the sea surrounded by the high cliffs of Vernazza as the sun goes down, and Alessandro's infectious love of wines and spirits leaves you in a fantastic mood hours later when you finally bring yourself to leave. We loved this so much that we couldn't stop talking about it the next day and spend a second evening there as well! Even after spending /several hours/ there and eating and drinking what seemed like everything there was to offer, we still came out at less than 30 euros per person.

From the main square at the Vernazza pier, walk up the stairs by Gianni Franzi (Via Guidoni), make a left up the steep staircase at Via S. Giovanni Battista and look out for the posters for the Vernazza Winexperience. If you are within 200km of Vernazza you should make a pilgrimage to this place.
