Italian Food & Italian Wine Pairing Workshop (WINCHESTER)
Pairing food with wine should be easy and fun, yet so many people become stressed at the idea of make a wine faux pas. Yet the best part about pairing food with wine is the experimentation and delights at finding a pairing that YOU enjoy.
Italy produces the most wine in the world. But Italian wine can be intimidating for beginners due to the unfamiliar names — it's more Nebollio & Verdicchio than Merlot and Chardonnay. But the secret to drinking Italian is… it's all about the food!
So we shall pair 5 Italian wines (Verdicchio, Gavi di Gavi, Montepulciano d'Abbruzzo, Chianti Classico Riserva, Barbera d'Asti, Primitivo, Nero d'Avola, Ripasso, Appassimento for example) with 8 Italian nibbles to perfection (such as pasta in pesto sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, parma ham, pepperoni calzone, dolcelatte blue cheese, pasta in a spicy arrabiata sauce, etc.).
There are some general guidelines you may find helpful when selecting a wine to enhance your meal, all of which will be studied and tested during this tasting! We'll put the theory into practice by pairing our chosen wines with very carefully selected Italian nibbles, and deliberate which pairing works best for us. What fun!
