Join us in learning from the best Sommeliers France, Italy and Belgium have to offer. Our wine tasting evenings are not only stimulating, but they are also a great way to have fun with your friends, colleagues, or celebrate an upcoming wedding or event.
During this wine-filled evening, we’ll hear an explanation about each region’s distinct wine attributes whilst tasting different varieties of Red, White and Rose. Each wine will also be accompanied by a complimenting dish from the local tradition, so that by the end of the evening you’ll be an expert on anything wine-related!
All our wine tasting take place in our Wine Tasting Room in Antwerp. You can find us at Arenbergstraat 16, 2000 Antwerp.
Italian Sommelier and Wine Master, Marco Lori was born to work with wine. Literally. Having first harvested grapes at the tender age of six on his father’s small plot of land near the Castelli Romani, Marco has lived his life connected to the vine. Hungry (or thirsty) for this knowledge, Marco’s first sommelier training in 1994 sparked his passion for wine and set into motion years of study that recently earned Lori “Italian Executive Wine Master” status recognized by the Worldwide Sommelier Association. Marco Lori is currently a freelance writer for a few Italian magazines, “Eating Italy” Food Blog, “The American in Italia” web Magazine as well as consulting with a wide range of companies and organizations in Italy and the United States.

Our wine events are a great way to discover the best wines of a certain area. In addition to the most reknown wine areas of the world, such as France or Italy, we also explore lesser known wine regions that offer us quality wines. We organise wine tasting that focus on Eastern European wines, Slovenian wines or Lebanese wines, where you get to discover the best reds and whites the area has to offer.
For every wine tasting we invite an expert sommelier that knows the wine area in and out. Our sommeliers either fly in from Italy, France or Belgium and are happy to share their knowledge and expertise with you. The wine events are a great combination of exploring new wines, getting to know more about a wine area and having a fun time in good company.
For a unique experience we also provide some traditional dishes that we pair with the wine selection of that evening. We make sure the flavours play together in unique ways, and that we not only explore the best wines of the area, but also their best local food.
