OMG we had sooo much fun with Roman and learning about Italian wines. Not only was the tasting informative but by the end Roman made us feel like long lost friends. I highly recommend this tour. You won't be disappointed and definitely will be satisfied.

Our experience with Roman was fantastic! We are from the state of Michigan and have experienced many wine tastings…this was our favorite by far. We learned so much about the wine process and what is involved to making wine, smelling wine and tasting wine. Roman answered all our questions and was a generous and kind host. The tasting room in a bunker was unique and comfortable. I would highly recommend this 3 hour tasting and experience. Thank you, Roman! If ever we are back in Switzerland we will visit again. Much love, The Capone Family.

Must do in Zurich

What a phenomenal experience. Roman was witty and entertaining and also taught us a ton about wine. We booked this to celebrate my wife’s birthday and once I mentioned this to him in an email, he called me and arranged for something special for my wife. Not only did his own wife bake us a chocolate cake (using her grandmothers recipe! How cute!) but he also opened a special bottle of wine that paired perfectly with the cake. We learned more about wine with him than we have in any winery we have ever been to. Also! You won’t be hungry as he prepared a phenomenal Italian starter with various types of meats and cheeses that went very well with the wine choices. Would recommend this experience in a heartbeat. If you’re in Zurich, do not hesitate to book this! You won’t regret it!

Hello Joenny, thank you very much for this excellent rating. I am happy that I was able to teach you a lot about wine and its environment (how to hold a glass ... don't forget :-)). You were great "students" and participated very well. And we also had a lot of fun with it. Stay healthy and have a good journey. Roman

That was big different-the host ( Roman) picked me up and dropped me off at the hotel, even only me on the tour he didn’t cancel it - the food and wine were great . I learned a lot of wine today. Please book and support his tour. Thank you Roman.

Roman is a knowledgeable and entertaining host. He picked us up on time and spoke perfect English. We were treated to a great selection of Wines, liqueurs and digestifs. Delicious appetizers were served and thoroughly enjoyed. The Italian wines were new to us and we learned what look for in the future.

Amazing Experience and Host!

This experience was the best I've had when traveling. We were transported to the shelter for the tasting. The food and wine were amazing. We had such a great time enjoying the wine and food and chatting. We learned a lot and also got to ask a lot of questions. It was very comfortable and just like spending time with another friend, really. Very Excellent! Highly Recommend!!

Die Weindegustation war von A bis Z ein Vergnügen. Roman ist ein sehr netter und lustiger Mann. Meine Frau und ich haben uns köstlich amüsiert und sein Wissen über Weine ist ausgezeichnet. Wir haben die 3h in vollen Zügen genossen und sehr viel gelernt. Ich kann dieses Erlebnis jedem weiterempfehlen, der einen zwanglosen, lustigen und lehrreichen Nachmittag verbringen will.

Lieben Dank für die gute Bewertung, Raphael und Katja es war auch für mich ein schöner und unterhaltsamer Nachmittag. Bei der nächsten "offenen" Degustation gegen Ende des Jahres, seid Ihr herzlich eingeladen. Ich schicke Euch dann die Infos. Beste Grüsse Roman Surber
