The wine tasting was amazing! The staff were so welcoming, knowledgeable, and fun! The snacks that were provided were really tasty and the environment was warm, friendly, and such a nice time! I cannot recommend this experience enough - a must-do for anyone travelling to Como!

Did not met our expectations, cannot recommend it. Hosts were very passive and did not pay enough attention to the guests. First wine introduction was done by sommelier and was interesting. All the rest was not so professional just main facts from the etiquette. During the tasting we were left alone, no one from the host were with us at the table. I was expecting a 2hours attention and interesting discussion about local wine traditions. Instead guests were talking to each other and hosts were doing their things. Would be the same if we would just went to the restaurant.
At Host, please consider to change your approach and program and spend more time with your guests

Hello Dream, we are sorry to read this comment from you, all our staff Giovanna, Sandu, Giuseppe, Riccardo are able to explain the wines and answer all your questions. We are a professional team working together specialized in wine experiences, we do our best to give our customers good wines, good food and good memories about Como visiting. People usually is happy to come and we are happy to welcome. Our shop it's family owned so we have to do things, but someone of us is with the group and always ready to answer your questions, wine tasting is not a wine course even if we try our best to give you some interesting informations about the wine, terroir, producers, wine making. A shame you did not say a word about the wines and food you tasted, and we don't remeber any question, so it's difficult to understand your expectations. I don't think we deserve this rating but we accept it, regards. Capitan Drake

Excellent Wine experience! We sampled (with a generous pour) -Prosecco, White, Rose and Red. Each wine was well chosen. They also paired our wine with excellent cheeses and meats. Our host was pleasant and knowledgeable.

Did not make it!! Was not able to get transportation to it- Was staying in Lecco and they only had 3 taxis and all were busy!! Tried to hire a independent driver But the cost each way was terribly uneconomical to use!! Could not get a refund either!!

Funny ! So you did not the experience. We are not a Taxi company ! We are located in Como city center so you were not able to reach us from another town ? very sorry about it ! We do professional wine tasting and people love it. Usually the Wine Tasting is at least 4 wines and food board and the experience take 1 hour and half or 2. We love our job and we give a warm welcoming to all customers. You cancelled on Viator 1 hour before without contact us. All we can do answer here ! Ciao

The wine tasting at Capitan Drake was our first stop for our Bachelorette party weekend. WE LOVED IT! The food was amazing, the wine was amazing and was described so well by the absolute amazing and nice Ricardo.
At the and he surprised us with a Champagne which the bride was allowed to cut open with a big knife. We had lots of fun and we highly recommend it!!
Thank you so much Ricardo for welcoming us so warmly and making the evening fun with your sense of humor!

We had a fabulous time! We highly recommend Capitan Drake's! The choices of wines were fantastic, and the cheeses and meats were so delicious. It was an intimate gathering of just our family. We were treated so warmly and kindly. We needed a little help getting to our next destination, and they were so sweet. Very charming venue.

Taste some amazing Italian wines on offer, share a plate with friends or make some new ones!

Sampled some fabulous wines, a great range from prosecco to chianti and a devine cab sav. All explained by the helpful staff and the lovely owner.

The tasting is perfectly accompanied by a delicious plate of cheese and meats as you work yoyr way through the lovely wines, tucked away in Captain Drake's wine shop.
