Test your knowledge about wines through a blind tasting run by a local expert while discovering the most authentic wine bars in Verona city. Recognizing local reds and whites will not be a challenge for you anymore after these informative tastings. The tasting throughout the tour will lead to a final blind tasting, where, in ‘competition’ with the others, you have the chance to win a Wine Diploma. You will meet your leader (who is also a wine expert) in Verona main square Piazza Bra n.28 in front of Farmacia Internazionale at 10.30 am (morning section) or 3 pm (afternoon section). Together you’ll head to the first stop, a wine bar nearby, in order to have your first glass of local white wine. It could be Prosecco, Soave, Lugana, Durello, who knows! That’s of course part of the game. Your tour leader and wine expert will provide you with information on how to taste this wine and what its main features are (nose, aroma, palate) in order to distinguish it in your final test. Afterwards you’ll continue with a nice walk through the Verona historical centre, giving you the chance to admire the monuments and picturesque corners until you reach your second stop with your second white wine tasting in a local wine bar. Important details about the wine features and wine making process will be provided by your wine expert, which will certainly be useful to keep in mind for your wine test in the final stop. The third stop is all about red wine, you’ll learn where exactly this wine is from (Verona area would be too generic as an answer) and what kind of flowers, fruits and spices you can detect if you taste carefully. The final stop is in a very well known Osteria or Locanda, which is a local term that indicates a casual place that is a mix between wine bar and restaurant, where you can always find plenty of wine by the glass. Here a real blind tasting set will be prepared with tasting placemats for everyone and bottles of wine without the labels. The test consists of describing with as much detail as you can the 3 wines previously tasted plus a fourth new one closely linked with the others. Knowing the exact name of the fourth one is not necessary in order to win the competition; its more important to recognize through your senses its main characteristics and, if possibile, a nice food pairing. The winner will have his/her own personalized Diploma in local wines.
