In this wine-tasting class, we pit two of the oldest wine-producing countries in the world against each other. It’s Greek versus Italian Wine. Is this a fair contest? One is the largest wine importer (more than 33%) to the United States, the most negligible (less than 1%).

Philly is famous for its love of Italian wine, but there is a growing love for Greek wines. Several of our graduates have turned their passion for Greek wines into a career (Chris Jelepis, owner of Sonata Wines, and Neil Ross, the founding Sommelier of the Estia Restaurant Group).

This class is designed to open your eyes to the exceptional wines from Greece while enjoying some top-notch Italian wine. Best of all? You get to choose who wins in this Italy-vs-Greece wine smackdown.
