Grand Tour of Italy, (Colchester)
Italy is a nation that loves its food and accompanies it with many exciting wines.
Some of the best Italian wines come from the big three regions – Tuscany, Piedmont and Veneto where famous name wines such as Barolo, Amarone and Chianti are produced. There have also been big improvements in quality in the wines from Abruzzo, Puglia and Sicily giving more to explore.
We will tour Italy aiming to make it easier to understand and explore some well established principles of food and wine pairing as well (aiming to crack the wine pairing code)!
All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet and use of professional tasting glasses.
