World of Wine Italy and Germany (St Albans)
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wine tasting looking at Italy and Germany. Italy is a nation that loves its food and accompanies it with many exciting wines. Some of the best come from the big three regions – Tuscany, Piedmont and Veneto, where famous name wines such as Barolo, Amarone and Chianti are produced. And, there have been big improvements in quality in the wines from Abruzzo, Puglia and Sicily, which we will also explore.
Move north, to Germany, but forget the sweet, sugary output of the 1970s and investigate a well-guarded secret of amazing wines. Led by Riesling, the King of the white grapes, Germany now also produces fabulous dry and sweet Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir wines.
This wine tasting evening also makes a great Christmas gift for only £25
All tastings include at least seven wines, sourced locally so you can find them if you like them, tasting notes, a tutored presentation and use of professional ISO tasting glasses.
