Event Details

Burgers & BurgundyJust when you imagine that after so much time and so many delightful wines, Tuscany would run out of its ability to suprise us with new wines, along comes Morellino di Scansano. 

I'm going to say it right now before anyone else does: Morellino is the next Brunello.  It's a clone of Sangiovese, and these wines are spectacular in quality.  Right now, they are undiscovered and undervalued... the next big thing, which is what we always want to be bringing you from the Wine School.
Antipasto!
This class + dinner will take you deep into a new part of Tuscany called Maremma: coastal Tuscany, north and west of Florence all the way to the sea.  We will taste six different expressions of Morellino, each with a course of Tuscan cuisine.

Thanks to our friends from the Wine Consortium of Morellino di Scansano, we're able to bring you this special class at a special price.  Get to know Morellino di Scansano and discover more personalities of Tuscan wines.

Organizer

Boston Wine School

A lot of people have never been to a Boston Wine School class before, so let me tell you what to expect.

First of all, we are a guaranteed 100% snob-free zone. No matter who you are. No matter how much you know about wine. We know how to make wine interesting and interactive for everyone.
 
Classes are small — usually 15 students max — and usually start with sparkling wine, then bread, cheese, olives and antipasto. Expect to taste 6-8 specially selected wines. Weekend classes include dinner, featuring vegetarian options.
 
Have a great class!
