The Wine House is delighted to partner with Dalla Terra (Italian Winery Direct Importer) to present an ENCORE EDITION of our six-part educational series covering Italy’s most important wine regions – including well-known favorites as well as the most exciting up-and-coming areas. The course sold out last year and many of you requested we present it again – so here it is! The series begins with Puglia & Sicily on January 22, 2018 and will follow with additional classes on selected Mondays (Please see Course Schedule below). Participants will journey across Italy learning about historical events and outside influences, appellation breakdowns, native grape varieties, while tasting wines specific to the regions.
Italy is one of the most interesting countries for wine, but Italy can be intimidating, as it is vast, regionally specific, with tremendous diversity! This series gives you the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of each region in particular, and the entire country as a whole. This series is led by Diego Meraviglia, Vice President & Director Of Education of North American Sommelier Association, who was born and raised in Northern Piedmont. Diego’s passion, educational technique and experience gives you a whole new perspective on one of the most beloved wine countries. You will leave this course excited and inspired to learn and taste more!
