Caravaggio's story is really fascinating and it was a pleasure to listen to it. The pictures also taught me something about the history of arts. It was a bit like visiting Rome when Daniela showed me some buildings and alleys in Rome where Caravaggio had lived. Strongly recommended!


Such an fun and informative lesson. Covered a lot of ground from the history of wine to how to make the most out of tastings. The workbook Daniela emailed is great too! Lots of ideas for wines I want to taste and regions I want to visit.


Offline in Finland, Online in Italy! What a great experience I just had: Livestream wine-lover class with italian Sommelier from Rome! Such a great feeling to dress up and imagine yourself going to a winery visit in Italy while sitting in your living room. I even checked the weather in Rome and dressed as I would actually be there. I would recommend this online experience to everyone who loves wine!


The lesson was very interesting and informative. It was nice to know some history and about making wine. She gave us a very good lesson and it was great fun. Love it. Thank you!


We enjoyed the novelty of the session, and learned a few things also. It was a relaxing couple of hours, Daniela is a very charming woman.
