Discover Wines From Italy (SOUTHAMPTON)
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wine tasting on Italy. Time for some tasty traditional classics!
‘A country famed for its delicious food, versatile reds and delicate whites. You simply can't go wrong with Italy!’ – Cecile
A country that defines food and wine matching with many exciting wines produced from the big three regions; Tuscany, Piedmont and Veneto. BAROLO, BARBARESCO, AMARONE, MONTEPULCIANO and CHIANTI are just a few famous wine names you’ll discover from these classic regions.
In addition we’ll investigate why the TWO biggest phenomenon in the UK have been two Italian whites, PINOT GRIGIO and PROSECCO, and where these easy-drinking wines have surfaced from, and why they tick our boxes.
We also love introducing you to wines and grape varieties you might have never heard of, but which have become our very own favourites and may become yours too after this tasting! GAVI DI GAVI, SOAVE for the whites and PRIMITIVO from Puglia and NERO D'AVOLA from Sicily for the reds, will definitely be worth trying, trust us ;-)
All tastings include: minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, PowerPoint presentation, and use of professional ISO tastings glasses.
