Friday’s Class: Native Italian Grapes (the Reboot)

How do you read an Italian wine label? What are some of their lesser-known grape varieties? How do we best pair our summer recipes with Italian wines?

There are over 300 grape varieties native to Italy. Back by popular demand, join Annie this Friday at 5 pm CST as we explore the origins and qualities of two grapes with strong Italian roots: Lambrusco & Grignolino. She’ll lead a guided tasting of two classic examples, discuss pairings, and how they reflect the land from which they originate.

To reserve a seat in Annie’s class May 8th at 5 p.m. CST, please fill out the form below. We keep our classes at an intimate size so that everyone has a chance to participate in the on-going conversation that is wine.
