Italian Wine Class

Who's Attending

22 people are attending The Italian Wine Class


Italy has a well-earned reputation for being one of the world’s best producers of fine wine.  Grapes are grown in all parts of the country, from mountainous terrain, volcanic soils,  to the Mediterranean coastline.  Italians have been master winemakers  for centuries,  an ancient culture  influenced by Greeks, Phoenicians, and Romans.

This diversity is why Italy grows a vast number of native grapes, more than any other country in the world. In this class, you will experience and learn  about the most famous of Italian wine grapes.
