In this seminar, participants will expand their knowledge of Italian wines and regions, while developing greater ability to assess characteristics and quality through lecture, tasting, and discussion. We will discuss viticulture (grape growing) and vinification (wine making) in greater depth, which will help in the understanding of those factors influencing both the style and price of what goes into the bottle. Italy provides a perfect backdrop to find out how this country’s geology and geography results in distinctive wines found nowhere else in the world. Throughout our tasting of the flight in this seminar, we will discuss pairing wines with food.

Become more comfortable ordering wine in a restaurant, as well as the etiquette for sending back a bottle. An introductory overview of the most common potential wine faults will be presented.

The instructor will remain after class to assist participants with wine shopping, or to answer additional questions.
