Preview of Online Wine Course of Italy

Romance, art and beauty are synonymous with this wondrously proud people. Descendants of Medici, Michelangelo, Galileo, Armani and the wine giants of Chianti, Sassicia and Barolo. The Romans set the stage and the Italians cultivated La Dolce Vita.

From Italy’s popular Prosecco , now outselling Champagne in 2015, to the wines of Soave and Valpolicella and Amarone, we are swept away in this tour de force of wine opulence. Wines that are singularly considered pieces or art and collectively a museum of civilization. Italy has it all, over 1200 grape varieties across the long length and broad breadth of this scenic country. We showcase from the North West Cortese, Nebiollo and Dolcetto to Sangiovese in Tuscany and Aligianico and Nero’D’Avola we are impressed with imperial names of grapes that Caesar himself tasted. Punctuated by the splendid flavours and sights of culinary excellence Italy cannot be exempt from one of the must do acts of self-indulgence in one’s lifetime.

Learning about Italian wines through legendary stories passed through the generations, through tales of self-sacrifice, songs of innocence and romance we embrace, we express fondness and ardour to wines filled with presence. Italy is a powerhouse of wines in the world and is only beginning to erupt like Mount Vesuvius onto the global wine world. Join us, and learn about the rich wine history and culture of one of the oldest wine-producing countries.
