The Grand Tour of Italy
Anyone wanting to learn about wine, needs to understand one of the greatest wine nations, so join us as we travel through the very different and fabulous wine regions of Italy. 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. Come and taste two of the best wines in Italy namely Barolo and Amarone...
Italy can be the most confusing wine country to get to know, with its enormous diversity of wine styles, often from the same town! It is, however, worth spending a little time to understand it, with the discoveries amply repaying 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. You will taste some classic Italian wines, along with some new- wave wines from really cutting-edge winemakers.
Great italian wines with Italian meats, and cheeses to complement the wines...
