    First-time wine tasting

    Good first-time wine tasting. However, it was not in any vineyard but in the middle of Verona, in a type of wine cellar. The guide who told us spoke good and understandable English. Were served ham, cheeses, fruit eaten in connection with the tasting of 3 different red wines. It took about 75 minutes and we thought it was just right.
