Wine Theory Virtual Masterclass 002 – over 90 minutes we will delve into Italy, looking at 4 wines (2x 750ml bottles 2x 375ml bottles). In this session we roam the sunny central & southern regions of Italy starting with a pure crisp and ever refreshing white wine from the Marche region before venturing into Tuscany. From here we jump to Calabria and unearth an ancient grape seldom seen, before journeying to Sicily and climbing Mount Etna. During this time you will learn some of the tasting techniques that I have honed while becoming a Master Sommelier and also we will touch on history and legal requirments that govern these iconic regions.

Cost: $160 covers the wines, the masterclass and the freight to deliver the bottles to your door. In addition, you are welcome to invite people around to join the experience at no additional cost! 😀
