Cheese     Educational     Tasting (sit down)     Wine    

Join us as we discover the wines of the Castellare estate, located in Tuscany’s Chianti Classico region. During this class, you will have the unique opportunity to learn about 3 distinctive wines produced by Castellare with wine expert Massimo Serradimigni alongside a guided tasting of 6 high-end Tuscan formaggi and salumi pairings selected by Eataly’s expert cheesemonger Yahn Van de Walle. Each of Castellare’s wine labels is dedicated to a rare bird native to Chianti that is threatened by extinction, mostly due to synthetic chemical products and hunting which are both forbidden on the Castellare estate. 
In this class you will:

  • Have the opportunity to learn about Castellare wines with a wine expert
  • Taste high-end salumi and formaggi hand-selected by a cheesemonger
  • Leave having a better understanding Tuscan wine, cheese and salumi
  • Take home tasting notes
  • Receive a special market offer
  • Leave feeling confident while visiting Eataly’s Wine, Cheese and Salumi departments!
