Excellent tour. We visited two wineries that were very different - which was a great contrast. Learned a lot about the history of wines in the region and the types of grapes they use. We were also lucky because we were able to taste reserve wines at these wineries. Would highly recommend for anyone interested in learning/trying local wines. Andrea really went all out to ensure a great experience!

Andrea organized for us an outstanding wine tasting tour of a couple of wineries in Salento. He immediately understood what we were looking for and send us a proposal which perfectly fit what we were looking for. The tour itself was top notch level where Andrea was able to explain everything we needed to know about the history of Salento wines while displaying a deep knowledge of the wine process. Everything was organized to perfection. We were totally satisfied of the day we spent together tasting some of the most amazing wines which were totally new to us. Highly recommend.

We had a lovely time with Andrea, he taught us a lot about the history of wine in the area, how to properly taste and enjoy wine. The location is really nice and Andrea is very kind! This is definitely a great option whether you have a lot or very little knowledge of wine. Thank you Andrea!

Andrea greeted us at the door of the lovely B&B he manages with his wife. We went up to the rooftop for our wine tasting class - what a beautiful vista with a nearly full moon overlooking the gold-lit city. The class began with a description of the centuries old history of wine in Puglia and its still stellar place in the production of European wines. With his training as a sommelier, Andrea was able to provide us with tips to more fully appreciate a glass of vino - noting the wine’s appearance in a glass, the color, different scents, and how/when to take the first sips. We tried a white, a rosato and two reds. All were excellent and we explored the reasons why we liked each of them. Each wine was accompanied by the proper cheese and meats along with an explanation of why they were the most appropriate choices. Andrea is serious about his teaching without being overbearing or pompous. His easy style included a casual sense of humor and was educational but also realistic. It was a pleasure to spend the evening with him. We learned more about wines in general and, specifically, about the impressively lovely wines of Puglia. We would definitely recommend this class.

My mission is share all about my region and try to give some more tips to the wine lovers, useful to enjoy wine every time in all occasion, maybe apulian wine. Thanks again for you review, I hope to welcome you again, of course in front of a wine glass! Andrea

We spent an evening with Andrea tasting a white, rosato and red that he selected only after discussing our preferences and “getting a sense of our palate.” He paired each with creamy, sharp, and salty foods to demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of each combination and making the indelible point that wine enjoyed by itself is wonderful and wines with foods should hopefully compliment each other. He discussed the mechanics of technical tasting and instructed us, in a comprehensive way, to observe, smell and taste in an organized manner. He has a gift for teaching and a gentle joviality that made the time fly by but still feel concentrated with information and insight. The wines were each very enjoyable. He chose from our price range and to reflect varietals we had not yet experienced in Puglia . A real pleasure.
