Guided wine tastings in Venice

Venice has a number of excellent wine bars serving small glasses of ine called un ombra—as well as chichetti canapés and snacks (a few of my favorites are listed here), and when they're not too busy the staff are usually only too happy to take you on a tour of Italian wines.

On any tour, stick next to the guide.

Walking from stop to stop on the tour, you’ll be able to chat with her, ask questions, and hear her answers and explanations to everyone else’s questions as well. You'll get a lot more out of your tour (and bang for your buck) if you just stick close to the guide.
