My Big Fat Italian Wine: Luxury Wines of Italy
An educational wine experience
Join us as we delve into the darker, more brooding, more masculine world of flavors of Italy’s best-known and most expensive wines, named for their regions and known for their longevity, structure, acidity and food friendliness. Explore the similarities and differences of these luxury wines in terms of grape variety, wine structure, style, expression, terroir factors and experience for yourself what makes these famous denominations so very special.
Sit back and relax as your sommelier instructor sets the stage for an unforgettable, educational wine experience. Our wine classes provide a unique context for the enjoyment of wine appropriate for every level of interest and expertise. Throughout the evening, you will learn about the history, culture and language of wine through visual presentations, commentary and anecdotes from our personal experiences.
