Wine & Cheese Pairing

A privately led wine and cheese tasting.

Cheese and wine, need we say more? Italians never drink wine without food, and the pairing of wine with cheese is a perfect way to honor that delicious decree.

Living in or visiting Italy means that you are spoiled for choice when it comes to indulging in mind-blowing wine and cheese.

With world-class wine regions and top notch cheese-producing areas, mouth watering nibble-and-swirl tastings are the best way to explore and learn more about Italy’s rich biodiversity.

How would you like to spend a relaxing evening in the company of an Italian cheese expert and a sommelier, learning and tasting your way through a cheese and wine pairing degustation? 

Pairing cheese and wine may appear simple, but cheeses vary in moisture content, fat content, texture, flavor. Wines, too, vary in acidity, sweetness, body, and structure.

Your hosts share basic guidelines for wine and cheese matchmaking, and offer a little background for each tasted and poured product, and why when coupled, the two go so well together.

    We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Rome. We visited a neighborhood food market and several local food merchants, including a bakery, a pizza place, and a cheese store. Our guide was very knowledgeable about food, history, and traditions. Highly recommended!
