Venice Wine Tasting

a cruise excursion in Venice

Duration: 3 hours
Languages: EN, IT
  • Local prices from local partners
  • Timely return to your cruise ship
  • Cruise friendly cancellation policy

Discover the hidden corners of Venice with your expert wine guide, who is a professional sommelier. Participate in a unique wine tour which allows you a glimpse of local life, history, culture and traditions of the region, while learning about traditional local wines and their place in the Veneto culture.

The tour starts at Campo Santi Apostoli. When on a cruise to Venice, you have a lot of transportation options from the cruise port to the center of Venice

Your wine tasting tour will take you to two different enoteche (wine bars), set in authentic areas of Venice, well off the beaten path. In each “enoteca”, your personal sommelier will select two typical quality wines for you to taste, each paired with small Venetian appetizers, called cicchetti. We will start with white wines, and finish with red wines.

During your time together, you will learn about the most important aspects of Italian wine production and its role in Italian culture. Regardless of your level of wine knowledge, you will find this walk both informative and fun. Your guide will be happy to focus on any particular wine topic that interests you most, including history, tasting guidelines or quality standards.

The Classic wine tasting includes 4 glasses of wine from the Tri-Veneto area (the area formerly ruled by the Venetian Republic). Each wine is paired with small Venetian appetizers, called cicchetti. Examples of the quality wines you will taste are Prosecco and Tocai (white wines), and Refosco and Ripasso della Valpolicella (red wines), though the selection available may be subject to change.

There is the possibility to upgrade your wine tasting to the Premium level. Examples of these prestigious wines are Franciacorta and Gewurtzraminer (white wines), and Brunello di Montalcino and Amarone (red wines). Again, these selections may be modified if necessary. If you would like to personalize your wine tour and/or wine selections to match your group’s particular interests, please contact us for personalized rates. We are more than happy to accomodate special requests in order to fine-tune your visit.

In this tasting you can learn about the wine and the food of Italy and specially of Venice and  the Veneto. You'll be able to live a real italian experience, that and really make your holiday special. 

Enjoy this experience while you tour a hidden Venice with Mario or Rachel.
