    Drink, Eat and Be Merry on Lake Como

Drink, Eat and Be Merry on Lake Como

  • City: Bellagio
  • Duration: Approximately 1 hour.

Overview

The majestic, snow-covered mountains and translucent lake that border Bellagio serve as the backdrop for this fun and informative, 60-minute wine tasting at the Enoteca Cava Turacciolo, a quaint wine cellar hidden just off the village's main street. Here a carefully chosen wine list of over 300 labels awaits and, since Italians don't like to drink on an empty stomach, a stupendous variety of cheeses, cured meats, and freshwater fish will be offered too.

During this sommelier-guided wine journey, you will have the opportunity to taste three of the most illustrious wines of the Lombardy region, each displaying a distinctive trait that is native to the surrounding territory. The two tasting options - the Wines of Lombardy or the Wines of Lake Como - feature one white and two red wines. Along with every glass will be served a selection of appetizers chosen to enhance the flavors of the accompanying wine.
