Food and Wine

Winter Session 2019 


An interactive wine tasting party is the perfect way to explore the unique wines of each Italian region, discover a favorite new bottle, learn something new about Italian food and wine culture, and organize a fun night for friends. 

There are around 350 common wine grape varieties in Italy, so we have much to taste!
