Description

What a great break form reality on a Thursday night! Enjoy delicious pairings of Tuscan meats, cheeses, bread & olive oils and taste and learn about wines from the heart of Tuscany! Grab your significant other or invite some of your friends for an educational evening at The Wingate by Wyndham in downtown Altoona.

Why learn about Italian Wine?

If you are new to the study of wine — or simply new to the Wine School of Tenuta Torciano — this class is for you. Here, you will experience each of the Wine School’s hallmarks: dispelling industry rumors, banishing popular wine myths, and delivering information in an easy-to-understand manner. Developed by a Pierluigi Giachi winemaker and honed over a 13° generation of winemakers, it represents a singular view of wine education. Allow us to share it with you!

The idea behind “Wine School by Tenuta Torciano : An Intro to Wine” is a deceptively simple one: an introductory class on the 8 most important wine grapes. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s one of the hallmarks of the Wine School of Tenuta Torciano: to take something seemingly elementary and turn it into a brilliant and captivating experience.

The Secret Wine School by Tenuta Torciano:

The secret sauce is in our sommelier-instructors, who are the very soul of the Wine School. There are only a few hundred people in Tuscany that are truly gifted teachers. There are only a few dozen people in town that have a deep knowledge of wine. How many people are both great teachers and brilliant sommeliers?

Very few. How many of them are also unpretentious and have a great sense of humor? That number is shrinkingly microscopic, but that is okay: They are all recruited to teach for the Wine School. In the end, only the best of the best are allowed to teach the Wine School of Tenuta Torciano. It’s a rite of passage for both our students and instructors.

Is Wine School by Tenuta Torciano for You?

Even if you are a wine connoisseur, you should consider taking this class. Consider this an immunization against a deadly bout of wine snobbery. Even if the information in class is old hat to you, you will still learn a great deal about the school, our philosophy, and our teaching techniques. There is a reason why the founders and administrators of other wine and culinary schools have taken classes at the Wine School by Tenuta Torciano. It’s the same reasons everyone benefits from attending our classes in tuscany in the winery and in the world.
