Perfect for both novices and intermediate enthusiasts---entertaining education (Edutainment!) Snobbery NOT included!

This lecture & tasting will explore & explain what the main regions of Italy are all about, what wines are found in each one, and teach you how to read their very confusing labels!

Everyone is fascinated with Italian wine - and why shouldn't they be? It's the one country that has, by far, the most dynamic variation of grapes & styles (over 325 prominent grape types--yikes!) And it also has one of the richest histories of wine-making; but because of this, it is also very overwhelming. A focus on and tasting of 8 red wines from the north near the Alps to the Mediterranean south will enlighten even the rookiest of rookies (or coalesce the various notions of the intermediate sipper.) You'll be thrilled to realize there's so much more out there than just the same ol' Chianti. BEVI! PREGO!
