Event Description

From North to South and from East to West, the diversity of Italian wine is incredible. Many many native grapes, unheard of elsewhere, many ancient styles of winemaking, preserved and still embraced today. Our 4 week course will blend the familiar with the new, the classics with some surprises, and most importantly it will leave a lasting impression of the fabulous sights, smells and tastes of Italy's majestic vineyards.

 

We'll be tasting 6 wines each week, an idea of the structure of the course below:

Week 1, Thursday 9th June: The North West, Piemonte with all its glorious Nebbiolo will be here, perhaps a sweetie made from Moscato might make its way into the line up? There'll definitely be some fizz, we are in Lombardia and the land of Franciacorta of course!

Week 2, Thursday 16th June: The North East, what diversity the Veneto offers us! Superb Soave, amazing Amarone, perfect Prosecco, we'll find it all. And let's not forget the mountain regions! Alto Adige and Friuli Venenzia Guilia will feature here, these wines are unique and spectacular.

Week 3, Thursday 23rd June: The Central Region - favourites here are well known, a spot of Sangiovese and Montepulciano should be on the cards! But we will kick the evening off in style with some superb Lambrusco and a hunk of Parmesan cheese... nothing else quite captures Emilia Romagna!

Week 4, Thursday 30th June: Southern Italy and the Islands,  our chance to explore the breathtaking terrian of volcanic soils of Etna, Vesuvius and Sardinia. This week will be a parade of big, bold wines, but prepare to be surprised as we unveil the more elegant expressions which are incresingly finding their voice here. So much to enjoy..

It's going to be a delicious and thought provoking 4 weeks, we can't wait to see you there!
