ONLINE 3 Week Sunshine, Volcanoes and Islands
Join us for a virtual 3 week course focussing on the wines of the Southern Italy - Sunshine. Volcanoes and Islands. Over three Wednesday evenings, we’ll taste nine delicious wines that will being the wine styles of Campania, Puglia, Basilicata and Sicilia to life.
We’ll explore the history, terroir and wine styles of these beautiful wine regions and get in the mood for summer sunshine and holidays.
On each of the three online tastings we will lead you through a professional presentation & tasting of the wines, and send you the specific food pairings so that you can prepare simple dishes in advance, and taste them live with us!
It’s a great way to enjoy a foodie night in with great wines to match the dishes, discover new wines and regions; learn a huge amount and – most importantly – have a wonderfully relaxed, fun and informal food & wine experience.
In a new twist we will also run a short 5 question live quiz with you at the end of each tasting.
