Event description

Description

Wines from southern Italy have historically been overlooked in favor of the better-known and popular wine regions of northern Italy - mainly Tuscany, Piedmont and the Veneto. However, southern Italy has a rich wine making heritage and is considered the birthplace of Italian wines. With its warm Mediterranean climate, rich volcanic soil and abundance of ancient native grape varieties, vineyards have dotted southern Italy’s landscape for thousands of years and its wines were much prized by the ancient Greeks and Romans.

Today, southern Italy is, arguably, Italy’s most exciting and dynamic wine making region. With an added emphasis on quality, wines from southern Italy are increasingly receiving much critical acclaim and can compete with wines from more popular areas of Italy that carry loftier price tags.

Class instructor will be Bob Tait.
