Was ihr unternehmen werdet
It's a 3 hours experience, starting with a guided walking tour of the city, and leading to an introduction on Piedmont wines. Asti is a wonderful medieval city, with a great history and a charming city centre. Beginning from the Cathedral, great example of Medieval Piedmont architectures, we'll walk through ancient streets, where wealthy merchants, knights and crusaders passed through. We'll reach, after little detours, San Secondo square, the heart of the city. Next part of this activity is then indoor (or, when better, outside, depending on the season). Sitting in a local wine bar, we'll learn how to taste and how to talk about 3 local wines, paired with a set of 3 little appetizers. I'll pick food that should be easy to find, or make, also back home. From the vineyard to the glass, we will follow the grape path, through the wine making process and different ageing methods, to get to how a wine is chosen, paired and presented. I always leave some take-home notes, together with tips&tricks. In the end, you will get the bases to make a good wine impression on your next guests!
I'm Martina, sommelier, tour guide and biologist. I've been working in tourism for 15 years, and I'm a professional tour guide and sommelier. I am also a trainer in cooking academies, being specialized on food&wine culture and history. Born and raised in Asti, I've been travelling a lot and living abroad in some beautiful countries, such as Argentina and Australia. I organize and manage educational tours for professionals and tourists, focused on local food, wine and traditions. I'm a keen tour guide and, also, I lead classes based on local products, especially wines, to enjoy better our true Italian lifestyle. And to let people offer exceptional experiences to their friends and families, once back home!
