North-Eastern Italy: Marche and Veneto with Michael Franz
2 hours • $85
Italy’s north-east is every bit as strong as Piedmont or Tuscany when it comes to producing world-class wines, yet it doesn’t hold the fame it deserves for two key reasons: It is subdivided into four regions (Marche, Veneto, Friuli and Trentino-Alto Adige) and lacks a flagship wine like Barolo or Brunello di Montalcino. However, true wine lovers always care more about excellence than fame, and this class will survey the very best that the Marche and Veneto have to offer, both white and red. A companion class will consider Friuli and Trentino-Alto Adige, but don’t miss this opportunity to try unknown gems like Pecorino or great regional specialties such as Amarone.
