My boyfriend and I visited obseqvium in August 2013, we were touring italy and being quite 'foodie' we were very keen to taste the wine, cheese and olive oils of Tuscany, so pre-booked a wine tasting experience online before we travelled. When we arrived we were surprised to find we were the only people on the tasting event. We were a little early but made welcome and took the opportunity to scour the shelves checking out the wealth of stock before we sat down for our wine, cheese and olive oil tasting experience. Our sommelier Alicia was wonderful! Very knowledgeable, able to answer all the questions we gave her without making us feel silly, and made us feel right at home! The great quality wines were paired with delicious cheeses and the tasting of olive oils was very new to us, but we found it very interesting
to hear that there is more to olive oil than we thought! Our particular highlight of the experience was working our way through a box of scents, trying to work out what we could smell and taste in our wine! Overall we had a lovely, interesting, relaxed and above all delicious evening! Alicia stayed in contact with us even after our visit, answering some further questions we posed to her about wine decanters a few months after our trip even! A very personal and professional service from a great little shop! Highly recommended! In fact don't go to Florence without popping in!!
