Event description
Italian Wine Foundations Part 2, Central or Southern Italy

About this event

***Class Fee is $120. Please register to hold your place in the Italian Foundations Part 1 program. You will receive an e-mail with final class details inclusive of a payment link one week prior to the program.

This class offers a guided overview of the grapes, wines, and regions of central and southern Italy. A continuation of Italy Foundation 1, this Italy Foundation 2 course will focus on the wines which Foundation 1 did not. Also like Italy Foundation 1, we will focus on the wines themselves, instead of the history, microclimates, and soil types of the region. We will taste, analyze, and discuss our way through 10 wines from central and southern Italian regions, including Umbria, Puglia, Abruzzo, and several more. We will examine these wines, and try to understand what makes them so special. Our hope is that students will leave this class with both a clear understanding of the better-known wines of central and southern; Italy, and a keen interest in learning more about them. This class concludes the recommended foundation for more advanced classes on Italian wines.

This program is hosted by The Somm School in association with Michael La Vardera. Michael has spent the last 22 years in the wine industry has served progressively increasing roles as Sommelier for NYC restaurants, Beverage Director, and ultimately Corporate Beverage Director for multiple-unit, multi-State restaurant groups. He is an accomplished Wine Educator who served nearly a decade as the Director of Wine Education for a national supplier of import brands, where he also evaluated and selected which brands to import in the United States. He has also appeared on Television as host for 2 cable television series on Wine Education, and as “Michael The Sommelier” on Food Network and Bravo TV. Michael comes to The Somm School via New York City.
