The evening begins with an olive oil tasting - including 3 times winner Best Oil in Italy. Wines are then tasted with cheeses, hams, local produce.
All this conviviality leads naturally to singing (Dylan, The Beatles, Sam Cooke, Smokey Robinson, Elvis Costello, Radiohead...) with Carlo Melodia on guitar and voice and everyone can JOIN IN!
The event can be held (at home) in the wine bar or (away) wherever you like and be combined with a PIZZA PARTY.
Some quotes from people who have come to The Gecko:
“This is the best thing I have done for 10 years” and “I'm in heaven”.
And this is what GARY RHODES said
'At the end of the evening Johnny, an English chap who lives on a nearby vineyard with his Italian wife and daughter, took us to his bar at the end of the terrace. It was more like a lounge, with just enough seats for the crew, and we had nibbles and red wine galore while Johnny serenaded us on guitar and his daughter sang beautifully alongside him. The setting was like a movie; we couldn't stop listening and we couldn't stop drinking that local wine, either.' (read more...)
