Event Description

Our Introduction to Wine Saturdays are one of the most popular beginners tastings we run. Build on this knowledge with our Italian exploration edition. You should expect the classics alongside a few unexpected gems. Kick back, relax and enjoy the ambience as we spend the whole day tasting, learning about and enjoying our fantastic selection of wines...

Starting with an overview of the winemaking story in Italy, you'll quickly get to grips with the role of grape variety, climate, wine making techniques and even soil types in the world's most diverse wine making country. We'll show you how to swirl, sniff and slurp like the pros and you'll be introduced to wide range of different Italian wine styles. By the end of the day you'll know your Pinot Grigio from your Prosecco and be able to tell your friends the stories of the Italian Classics.

Learn how to decipher Italian wine labelling terminology, how to select wines to suit your taste, how much to spend on a bottle of wine and how to squeeze more enjoyment out of every drop!
