Le Cordon Bleu Logo

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 east. Finally, we will complete our journey in the north west.

Mr. Velentino Sciotti, the owner of Farnese Vini will make a visit in this workshop and present his best wines.

There will be bite-sized regional Italian tasting selections by Le Cordon Bleu Dusit Italian Cuisine Chef Instructor to accompany the wines at each session.
