cheese, wine & evoo tastings
SAVOUR LOCAL CHEESE, WINE AND EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Our trusted premium cheese purveyor provides the finest selection of local cheeses all produced in the heart of Campania including the freshest mozzarella, creamy burrata and caciotta along with delicious semi hard cheeses such as provolone, scarmoza and caciocavallo.
There’s nowhere more fitting to spend an early aperitivo hour on the island tasting these delicious local specialities perfectly matched with our Michel’angelo white, rosé and red wines while polishing your Italian cheese knowledge. By the end of the tasting experience, you will be able to impress your friends with knowledge of the difference between each local cheese and wine varieties and how to pair each cheese with condiments, such as honey, fruits and jams, and local wines.
The experience also includes an extra virgin olive oil tasting (7 varieties) of our Michel’angelo production where guests will gain an insight into tasting techniques, olive oil properties, olive harvesting and production of extra virgin olive oil.
