    This was a really great experience! The wine shop was lovely - cosy and authentic. Our host Marco was knowledgeable, kind, interesting and friendly, and we had a fab time. We got 4 glasses of prosecco each, a plate of snacks (crackers, meat and cheese), and lots of information about Venice and prosecco. Definitely worth booking! Thank you Marco! X

    Excellent host, charming location

    Our sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable not only about the wines we tasted but also the history of the food. Recondito is in an area we would not usually have visited- it is a charming neighborhood wine bar with hip music and colorful locals. The staff was friendly and welcoming- we stayed much longer than our tour time!

    What a delightful experience. We learned about Proseco, enjoyed several different types, all excellent. Best part was chatting with Marco, a local with good stories.
