INTRODUCTION TO ITALIAN WINES

In Italy, making wine, like eating or breathing is so natural that it seems instinctive. Thousands of grape varieties grow everywhere: There is virtually no place where vine does not grow. There are nine hundred thousand registered vineyards scattered throughout Italy's twenty regions. The purpose of this 8-hour program is to demystify Italian wines through a series of four regional tastings. We will start our virtual wine journey in the southern part of Italy and the Islands; then we will travel to central Italy and visit the North West. Finally, we will complete our journey in the north east.
