Full description

An original wine and food tasting in Venice to discover the famous local wine productions and the typical Venetian cicchetti in a genuine Venetian wine bar!

If you have the opportunity to spend an evening in Venice, you cannot fail to indulge the local aperitif tradition! To live to the full Venice experience, do not limit yourself just to taking a tour of its artistic beauty: diving into the soul of a place means fully embracing the heritage of local traditions with a thousand facets... Good food is one of the most important traditions in the city of Venice!
Unfortunately, for those who are visiting Venice for the first time, it can be hard to choose among the wide range of tourist proposals that really have little to do with exploring the authenticity of the typical Venetian ‘bacari’ (Venetian wine bars)...Thanks to this original Venice traditional happy hour experience, you can be sure that you are visiting one of the most appreciated wine cellars of the historical centre, attended by those who live here and true wine lovers!

During this experience, you will taste a selection of wines for a session of wine tasting in Venice, precisely in a Venetian wine bar to let you savour the local flavours in a sophisticated ambience that combines the tradition of 'bacari' with contemporary solutions.

Your experience will start directly at the wine cellar, located in the heart of the Castello district: here you will breathe the most authentic Venetian social life, particularly vibrant during Venice’s traditional happy hour. Nevodi Venezia, a time-honoured wine bar in the historic centre, is a charming venue, stylishly furnished to create an intimate and welcoming atmosphere. Fresh food and courtesy, combined with a home-like atmosphere and excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, turn the Osteria Nevodi into an excellent destination for an aperitif, which is why we chose it as the venue for this new and exquisitely Venetian experience!

You will taste four different types of wine, selected among the best offers in a region that boasts some of the finest wine production areas in the world:

  • 1 Prosecco Col Fondo (a slightly turbid Prosecco with natural yeast sediment, natural fermentation in the bottle with a crown bottle top);
  • 1 white wine to choose between Friulano, Manzoni Bianco, Soave;
  • 1 red wine, choose between Refosco and Marzemino;
  • 1 Ripasso of Valpolicella (Valpolicella fermented in Amarone marcs).

In order to enhance the quality of these four types of wine selected especially for you, you will also be served typical cicchetti from Venice: crostini, meatballs and other small delicatessens of local cuisine that traditionally accompany an aperitif in Venice. You will be spoiled by scents, flavours and tradition: a sophisticated wine experience in Venice, Italy to taste renowned wines in a charming wine cellar in the historic center of the city ...

Nevodi means ‘nephews’ in Venetial dialect: owners Andrea and Matteo will convey all the Italian spirit of the dolce vita... An opportunity to fully enjoy your stay in Venice and spend time in total relaxation, away from the chaos of crowded areas. The Osteria offers tradition and innovation in a cozy and rustic environment, where the bubbling and genuine hospitality of the two young owners has proved to be the trump card: this place is a guarantee of quality, unfortunately increasingly difficult to find in a city of high tourist vocation like Venice. What we propose is therefore one of the most authentic gourmet activities in Venice... To best enjoy your aperitif in Venice without missing out on anything.

Thanks to this original taste tour among famous wines and delicious cicchetti, you will discover the simple and spontaneous atmosphere that you feel in one of the most appreciated wine bars in Venice during happy hour, and go on an exciting adventure between flavours and emotions! Do not miss the chance to enter the vibrant city life of a lively Venice neighborhood!

At the end of this experience you can continue your evening at leisure, continuing with other tastings or, why not, trying the delicious specialties offered by the menu of the wine shop!

Book your tasting in Venice now! Wine and delicious Venetian cicchetti to spend a wonderful evening immersed in the authentic Venetian aperitif culture!


Nevodi Venezia is located in the Castello district: our advice is to get off at the Arsenale stop of Venice’s public transport, the restaurant is about 400 m away and can be easily reached with a short walk.
