Journey with us through the wine regions of Italy and discover what makes Italy the most fascinating wine producing nation in the world!
Taste beautiful Barolo, velvety Valpolicella, charming Chianti amongst many others in 4 sessions dedicated to unravelling the mysteries and delights of Italian wine.
We will sample from the myriad indigenous grapes that make Italian wine so different and intriguing including Nebbiolo, Barbera, Sangiovese, Corvina, Garganega, Turbiano. Alglianico and Primitivo.
Italy can be the most confusing wine country to get to know, with an enormous diversity of wine styles, but the discoveries repay the effort involved.
We will wander through the north of the country, from the north-west (Piedmont) to the north-east (Veneto), through Tuscany and Abruzzo to the warm south (Puglia, Campania, & Sicily).
This course runs for one evening each week and it is flexible - if you need to skip a night, just let us know in advance and you'll be able to pick up a repeat session.
We have priced the course to give an overall 15% saving against booking the nights separately.
