    We had an amazing evening with Roman with a unique tour of wines from Italy . The antipasti served with the wine tasting was very good and Roman was the perfect host, knowledgeable, incredibly professional and funny. We learnt how to smell, taste and enjoy our wines. This incredible tasting event is highly recommended

    Roman was an amazing host offering a fun and educational wine experience. Alongside the many types of wine he poured was delicious food and great conversation. Honestly, I would recommend this tasting to every traveler to the area as we walked away not only with a better knowledge of wine but with a great night full of fun memories and new friends. Thank you so much Roman for your kindness and sharing your wine expertise in a fun way!

    Hello Ashley vielen Dank für Deine lieben Worte. Wie schon in der vorhergehenden Antwort, es war fantastisch. Eine solch gute und fröhliche Stimmung war es und ich spürte, dass ihr den bombensicheren Weinkeller alle fröhlich und gut gelaunt verlassen habt. Danke auch für die Einkäufe die ihr gemacht habt. Ich hoffe, wenn ihr den Wein trinkt, euch nochmals an mich zu erinnern.
    When in Zurich do as Roman says!!!

    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.

    Kim_C, Apr 2022
    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
    Joenny_M, Dec 2021
    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!
    Response from Host, Dec 2021
    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
    This was a fantastic...
    Patrick_S, Nov 2021
    This was a fantastic night that I would highly recommend for couples, family or friends. Roman was a great guide through the tasting, and made the entire night so much fun. The food and wine was really good, and the laughs were even better!

    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.

    Day trip to Italy!
    SUZANNE_W, Sep 2021
    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.

    Best Wine Tasting in Zürich
    Jay_P, Jul 2020
    Excellent experience! Roman has so much knowledge about wine and also about the world. This wine tasting is a global experience, complemented by top wines and delicious apero. Best wine tasting my girlfriend and I have ever done!

    Amazing Experience and Host!
    jonathan_kilgore, Oct 2019
    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!!

    Hello Jonathan and Toph Thank you for your great review. I also enjoyed it very much and it was really like having two old friends drinking a glass of wine and having fun.

    Sehr informativer Nachmittag mit einem tollen Gastgeber und ausgezeichneten Weinen. Wir können die Weindegustation hwrzlichst weiterempfehlen.
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    Besten Dank für die gute Bewertung. Vielleicht auf bald einmal.
    Tolles Erlebnis
    Rafael_M, May 2021
    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.
    Response from Host, May 2021
    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
