What you'll learn in this wine tasting class:

This lecture will explain what the main regions are all about, what wines are found in each one, and how to read their 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. It also has one of the richest histories of wine-making. But because of this, it is also very confusing. A focus on and tasting of 7 red wines will enlighten. There's so much more out there than just Chianti.

Class fees cover the cost of glassware and printed materials.

Aaron Epstein has been passionate about wine since before he could legally drink it. As a student of languages, his love of the grape was born in Spain, and fermented during a year living in Bologna, Italy. It has since led him around the world to work wine jobs in almost every aspect of the industry, before bringing him back home to New York City, where he now sells some of Italy's finest wines as a representative of boutique importer/distributor Omni Wines (an Italian wine specialty company.) Aaron is fluent in Italian, has been a wine consultant professional for over 10 years, and is an industry expert in Italian wines. He is proud to be part of Vino-Versity, and excited to share his experiences with you.
