Food & Wine in Sorrento Coast
Whether you are a wine expert or not, take the chance to taste a selection of local wines and food.
Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by Guglielmo, the host, for a short walking tour of Villarena's old cellar and organic farm.
You're sure to have a great time learning about how to taste italian wines, paired with selected neapolitan traditional food. We use wine made with 100% pure grape juice, vegetables from our organic garden, our extra virgin olive oil D.O.P. (Protected Designation of Origin), cheeses produced by local cheese factories. We also constantly strive to offer our customers the best available selection of fresh produce, instead of commercial ones.
Tempt your taste buds with some of the best cheeses that Southern Italy has to offer. Expertly paired wines will surely make this experience something to tell your friends and family about.
This is more than a simple wine tasting, this is a journey to discover genuine and delicious flavours of Sorrento and Amalfi Coast: an unforgettable experience spent with people from all over the world!
Villarena's Old Cellar Restaurant and Wine Bar maintains its original construction dating back to the 16th century and was built by the noble family Farisani. At that time they laid the foundation stone of the cellar. Years later, the Farisani family helped local residents in the construction of the village church which was built just above the cellar itself.

These experiences, between wines and food, come from my passion for the research of local and quality products. I love doing grocery shopping, getting freshly baked bread, freshly caught fish, meat from my trusted butcher or collecting vegetables from my organic garden, choosing personally the products for my guests. I can't already tell you what you will eat, because everything depends on what I'll find that day. One thing is for sure: all fresh and seasonal products.
I get excited when I discover simple products, but with a special flavor, made with the heart by small local farms, like Salami Napoli without flour and lactose or local cheeses, like mozzarella and Provolone del Monaco.
In these years I visited many wineries, big and small, and I selected some Campania wines of great quality, whose history starts from Roman times.
I think if a person comes to Italy, he expects to taste something of truly typical and local. This is my goal!
I can guarantee you that it will be an amazing experience to discover authentic and genuine flavors. I put all my passion into it and I ask you to bring your high spirits!
