Italian winemaking dates back to 2nd Century, B.C.  Much like France with it's history, Italy is the largest wine producer by volume.  With more than 800 wine varietals documented, there is an almost endless supply of different wines coming out of this beautiful nation.  And we've got some of the best for our Italian Wine Class!

We will be tasting some of the best wines from all over Italy.  From Piedmont to Sicily to Tuscany; from Arneis to Pinot Grigio, Dolcetto to Sangiovese - our tour through Italy will be a tasting experience not to be missed!  

Brennan Downey, a dear friend, Arlington resident, and Italian Wine Guru will be leading us through our tasting tour of Italy.  He will be bringing some of his favorite Italian wines for this class.  All class attendees sample 8 fantastic Italian wines, enjoy a gourmet cheese plate, and receive special event pricing on all wines sampled during the class should they want to continue their Italian wine tasting at home.  

Tickets are $45 and space is limited!  Wine Club Members receive 15% Off tickets price!
