Italy! The Land of the Vine, according to the ancient Greeks; nowhere else is wine so closely intertwined with daily life in every village throughout the Italian peninsula – not even France. Nowhere else is there such a enormous array of excellent native varietals.

1. April 29th - The South (Campagnia, Sicily, Puglia, Calabria, Sardinia, Basilicata)

3. May 20th - The North (Piedmont, Valle d’Aosta, Liguria, Lombardy, Veneto, Alto Aldige/Trentino, Friuli-Giulia-Venezie)

Each region, its history and wines, will be discussed in depth. Classes will include tasting regional wines.

This classes will be held at Esquin Wine & Spirits, 2700 4th Avenue S., Seattle, WA 98134.
