It’s a great time to tour the wonderful wine world of Italy! From North to South we’ll revisit some favorites and sip some new surprises as we dive deep into the various remarkable regions of this peninsula.
Each week in this four part series we taste three different wines from different regions of Italy, with background on the grapes, the region and the people responsible for the beautiful beverages in our glass!
Class 1: Alpine Dreaming – Thursday, October 7th
The first part of our tour covers the great northern DOCs of Italy and some incredible wines – some favorites, some new! – of these regions closest to the Alps.
Class 2: Tuscany is Just the Beginning- Thursday, October 14th
Sure, Tuscany is great – and we will taste that – as well as some other lovely finds from the various parts of Central Italy.

As we head south along the peninsula we get to explore some truly unique and iconic grapes that are part of the wonderful mystery that is central and southern Italy.
