Event description

Description

Join us as we journey through the wine regions of Italy. Discover what makes Italy one of the most fascinating wine producing nations in the world! Taste beautiful Barolos, velvety Valpolicella and charming Chianti’s amongst many others. We will explore regions such as Piedmont, Veneto, Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, Lombardia, Puglia, Trentino, and Sicily - four whole weeks dedicated to Italy enabling us to unravel the mysteries and delights of Italian wine.

We will taste some of the myriad of indigenous grapes that make Italian wine so different and intriguing including - Nebbiolo (Barolo), Sangiovese (Chianti), Corvina (Valpolicella), and Barbera. Italy can be the most confusing wine country to get to know, with its enormous diversity of wine styles. It is, however, worth spending a little time to understand it and the discoveries repay the effort involved. We will wander through the north of the country, from the NW (Piedmont) to the NE (Veneto), through Tuscany and the Marches to the warm south (Puglia, Campania, & Sicily). You will experience first hand the amazing range of grape varieties and flavours that Italy has to offer and taste some classic Italian wines along with some from cutting-edge new-wave winemakers.

All tastings include a minimum of 6 wines, full tasting notes, use of professional glasses and lots of Italian nibbles relevant to the destination of the evening!
