Event Description

Get ready to immerse yourself in the heart of Italy as we explore the captivating region of Tuscany.

Here, we'll dive deep into the world of Sangiovese, the famous grape variety that takes centre stage in all red wines from this zone, including the renowned Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, and the hotly debated 'Supertuscans'.

The question is, are the modern Supertuscan reds a better purchase than traditional Sangiovese-based wines of Tuscany? Only a tasting can decide...

This tasting is designed to take you on a journey of discovery, exploring the diverse variety of wines available from Italy and the fascinating indigenous grape varieties that make them so unique. Many of these grape varieties can only be found within this country, making this an experience you simply cannot miss.

And the highlight of the evening? The much-anticipated Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG, wines that embody the very essence of Tuscan winemaking.

Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to explore the beauty and complexity of Italian wines. Book your spot now and join us for an unforgettable evening of tasting, learning, and fun!

All tastings include: a minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, use of professional tastings glasses and some food pairing with nibbles.

All our courses can be purchased as a Gift, either as a dated or undated voucher.
