Richard booked this weekend away for my birthday a while back which was supposed to be a supprise but he got over excited and blurted it out one day haha. Since the booking, Rick Stein has done a program about it and I think it gained some popularity. We even happened to be on the same flight as a friend so met up for lunch one of the days!
What can I say, even though the weather went from 18 degrees to 8C, rainy to very sunny, we had a fab time trying all the local wine and produce.
Fisrtly, we stayed in a guest house called ‘Liberty’ which was absolutely beaut, filled with vintage furnishings, a four poster bed and a fab balcony. Secondly, most things are walkable. It is a small city and we love to stroll around/burn off the many calories we like to consume!
On our first stroll out, I randomly picked what looked like a very Italian bar called ‘La Prosciutteria – Bologna’ with local wine, hanging meats and fresh cheeses. It happened to be number one on the four square app and it did not disappoint. We ordered red wine (2.5 euros a glass) and a board of cheese, parma ham and bruchetta (15 euros) yum!
The second day was very rainy so we took a trip to the Museum of evolution. They have so many “preserved” animals species and also humans on the top floor, very eery! Anyway, after that it was still raining so what better way to keep dry and warm than to go wine tasting!

We tasted white wine in the market with a cheese and ham toastie then on to a cute bar down an alley way. We ordered Bologna white wine which was my fave along with a huge board of hams and cheese, again 🙂

After a power nap, we went out for dinner. Now this was an experience. It is a restaurant hosted by a man of character! He was hilarious! It is called ‘Drogheria della Rosa’.

Firstly, there is no menu, they pour you a white wine as soon as you sit down and bring entrees of fritatta, cheese and salami. The host talks to you and decides what wine and dishes he thinks you’ll like! He brought us two different pastas to start and a steak and pork ossa bucco to share for mains! He also chooses the desserts and starts singing half way through the night. The longest meal we’ve ever had (three hours), the fullest I have ever been. It is worth it guys!!!
You should visit! Flights are cheap and it’s a great weekend away!
