What you'll do

This Italian tasting route is dedicated to Spritz, a classic drink with a remote origin. During the Austrian domination in the Lombard-Venetian period between the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century, the Habsburg soldiers, accustomed to a consumption of beer with a lower alcohol content, began to dilute the full-bodied Venetian wines with seltzer or sparkling water. Its name derives from the German verb spritzen which means "to spray". White wine and sparkling water: this was the first Spritz and, in many areas of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, the Spritz is still this. But the cocktail as we know it today was born only in the twenties of the twentieth century, when a bitter like the newborn Aperol or the Select was added to the mixture. The experience includes: - Spritz aperitif with chef Salvatore Caiello's appetizers - fresh shrimps and seasonal vegetables tenpura - champagne risotto - bake shi drum fillet with seasonal vegetables - crème brûlée con Passito - Vernaccia di San Gimignano, water, coffee
