Italy has a very strong regional identity when it comes to it's food and wine. This makes it the perfect country to explore, in depth, over a 4 week food & wine course.
Week 1: Wines of NW Italy: 1st Feb 2022
Home to the world famous wine region of Piemonte and lesser known Vallee d'Aosta and Lombardia, this corner of Italy produces some of the finest reds, whites and sparkling wines. Paired alongside 'mountain' style foods, these wines are the perfect match!
Week 2: Wines of NE Italy: 8th Feb 2022
The wines of Trentino-Alto Adige, Veneto and Fruili Venezia Giulia bordering wboth Austria and Solvenia result in a lot of stylistically different wines from the rest of Italy, all of which pair beautifully with local foods.
