What you'll learn in this wine tasting class:

Italy is the world's second largest wine produces, but navigating an Italian wine section can be a daunting task.  In this beginner’s wine class, our Eatalian wine expert will help you to distinguish Italian grapes and taste wine like a pro.  One thing that makes Italian wines so fascinating is the diversity in both culture and geography throughout the country.  We will explore the different wine regions within Italy, indigenous Italian grapes and the proper method to sip, swirl, smell and taste wine. You will be guided through a selection of 5 Italian vini accompanied by Italian antipasti and will receive wine tasting notes to take home.

Antipasti, to be determined
