Italy is home to many indigenous grapes that have yet to achieve real success in other countries. Think, for instance, Nebbiolo (Barolo) and Sangiovese.
Wines of Italy
- Duration: 2 hours
Italy, Italy, Italy — what a beautiful country and what diversity of wine. Diversity is both the glory and the bane of Italy. There is too much wine in Italy, too many grapes (with different names, or same name different grapes), and way too many regions. This Italian wine class in Houston, TX covers the meaning of common labeling terms indicating quality or style, the grape varieties are connected with various DOC(G)s (so that you can pick a wine in a restaurant or retailer with confidence), a geographical overview of the Italian Wine “Zones,” as well as a more in-depth look at each major region. You have an opportunity to taste eight different wines from these major regions. Save your spot in this Italian wine course and tasting at the Texas Wine School!
