Testimonials

'On a recent trip to Venice we scheduled a wine tasting with Mario for 2 couples. To say that Mario is an expert is an understatement. Those of us visiting are not wine experts by any means but we left feeling that we had gained useful knowledge derived from Mario's descriptions and explanation. His knowledge of the local scene, the wines and history of the area is tremendous. He is a very personable man with great stories and insight to the area. Do yourself a favor and call him.'
