Italian Red Wine by the Grape - Live Online Course, Fall 2020

This 4-part Online Mini Course will explore in depth Italy's most iconic wines, and noble grape varieties. View Italy’s most famous wines in depth from the perspective of the varietal and how it interacts with the terroirs of the various DOC/DOCGs where it is grown. Sessions will be 90 minutes long (one hour lecture + 30 minute tasting/discussion) & will include real-time interactive tastings.

Tasting cases of representative wines will be available for pick up in Seattle, and a wine list will be made available to non-local participants to seek out same or similar wines (wines sold separately). This course is an intimate, in-depth exploration of Italy’s great red grapes and wines, and although the material is addressed in what many would consider Advanced detail, Tanya’s teaching style is welcoming to all participants, suitable for any person who is passionate to get closer to Italian wines!
