Discover the Wines of Italy (Hitchin)
SORRY - THIS TASTING HAS BEEN POSTPONED AND WILL BE REARRANGED LATER IN 2020. Italy is currently the World’s largest producer of wine and is also the country with the greatest variety of grapes and wine styles. This tasting will explore Italian wine-growing regions from North to South and include, along the way, some of the most famous names including Prosecco, Barolo, Amarone, Chianti and Gavi.
We will try wine from a wonderful selection of grapes, such as Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Barbera, Corvina and Primitivo, many of which are found only in Italy, and, as Italian wines are notoriously 'food friendly' we will taste approriate food samples with some the wines.
Included in the line-up will be a special bottle of the very trandy and full-on Settebraccia from Puglia, as seen at the Hitchin WineFair.
Take a break from the football and join us on this evening tasting and find out why Italy’s reputation as a producer of quality wine has been well and truly restored.
All tastings include at least seven wines, sourced locally, so you can find them easily if you like them, tasting notes, a tutored presentation and use of professional ISO tasting glasses.
