We joined for a wine tasting here on a late winter weekday afternoon and it was a very memorable experience. Davide and his team introduced us to a great spectrum of Italian wines, with Greta knowledge in the history, development, geography of Italy. It was almost a tour of Italy in a sitting.
Highly recommended for tourists and locals alike to Como, and you don't need to be a wine expert, but you can come and learn from the sommeliers here at Captain Drake.

My roommate and I are students traveling around Europe during our study abroad. This was the perfect experience during our stay in Como. Hospitable, warm, and extremely knowledgeable. We learned a lot and are so grateful for a wine tasting that both fit our budget, was within walking distance of the center of Como, and provided amazing quality wine and food. 200% recommend. Grazie mille Riccardo, Giovanna, e Davide!

Our group visited Captain Drake on April 27. We had a wonderful evening! Riccardo made us feel so welcome and the wine and food were excellent. Riccardo even asked if anyone would like a vegetarian charcuterie board and my husband and I ordered one, which was full of delicious and tasty vegetables and cheeses. If you are visiting Como I would definitely recommend spending some time, here!

What to do on a rainy day in Lake Como? We decided upon a wine tasting tour and met the fabulous Matteo who took us on a journey of Italian wines. Accompanied by a lovely charcuterie platter for two. We now just need to figure out how to get some if these wonderful wines in Australia. Grazie!
