Offering you fascinating wines and their stories. There are more than 500 different “vigneti” in Italy, with at least 30 in Umbria alone. With us, you can have a taste of many of them, alongside whimsical food pairings that add more fun to the wines and to your experience. Knowing more about what you are drinking enhances the joy.
We offer small events from 1 to 8 participants, providing you with a more exclusive and personal wine experience.We think it is important to focus on having fun as much as on a “professional tasting”.You will get 0.1 l of every wine in the tasting so you can try a greater variety of different kinds. No one will be scandalized if you drink it and do not spit it out :-). We encourage you to fully enjoy the wines you like. You can end the day taking your favorite tasted wines with you for little money.
We can tailor the tasting to your wishes.
The cost varies, depending on what wines interest you. (If your interest is in a vertical Brunello tasting please be prepared, this is a luxurious event, priced accordingly). We attach some proposals to inspire your fantasy.
Your hosts are Nixy and Giovanni. Nixy is a Chinese Wine Journalist, who fell in love with Italy at the first drop of Sagrantino and has settled down in Perugia to be near to the Sagrantino. Giovanni is a German Biochemist who immigrated to Italy in 1987, worked for 30 years in agricultural consulting, and is now running the Buonrespiro wine cave and orchard. Nixy and Giovanni are both WSET certified (Level 3), and food and wine is their passion.
We have tasting labs in Perugia and Orvieto. In Perugia at the pittoresque square of Via Graziosa near the University for Foreigners. In Orvieto at our wine cave in the Buonrespiro countryside on the way from Orvieto to Bolsena.
We organize tasting events in Italian, English, German or Chinese, or in any mix of these languages to suit your group.
You must prepare your taste buds, nothing more.
For our standard tastings (5 wines, 90 minutes, with homemade breadsticksi), the price is 30 Euros. Minimum participation is 2 (a single participant would pay for two), maximum participation is 8. The remaining bottles will be auctioned after the tasting.
