Event: Italian Wine and Cheese Class 

When: May8, 2024 at 6:30 – 8:30 pm 

Where: Blind Bishop at 310 Sunset Ave, Dallas, TX 75208 

Price: $75 

Format:  Seated, interactive class with instruction. You will learn about each wine in a very hands-on format, so you can immediately put your new tasting skills and wine knowledge into practice. 

Level:  All levels from beginner to advanced. 

Learning points:  

  • The major grape varieties and wine regions of Italy including Sangiovese from Brunello di Montalcino and chianti, the powerful Aglianico, and the exquisite Barolo.  
  • The major characteristics of these regions and varieties by tasting wines that clearly show the classic grapes and the typical style.  
  • Important Italian wine terms on the labels such as classico and riserva, and how to interpret them to make an educated guess about how the wines will taste. 
  • How to ask the right questions about Italian wines when you visit a wine shop or when you see them on a wine list at a restaurant. 
  • The ways in which Italian cheese and wine can elevate your tasting experience when combined.  
  • Pairing suggestions for Italian wines and the principles behind these suggestions. 


  • A minimum of six different Italian wines. Each wine will come from a different region or made from different varieties so you can learn how the climate, geographic, and historic grapes influence a distinctive style.  
  • As learning is an important goal, we serve each wine in a different glass, with all six glasses on the table for each participant. This is a great opportunity for comparison. 

Food: We will have a selection of artisanal Italian cheeses, charcuterie, and bread to enjoy with the wines.
