About the Event

Chianti and it's signature grape Sangiovese are synonymous with Tuscany, but there is so much more to taste and learn about that far exceeds white and checkered table clothes with squat straw wrapped wine bottles.

During this class we will discuss, taste and explore several other unique treasures of Tuscany such as:

  • The differences between Chianti and Chianti Classico. There is a difference.
  • The Italian classification system from "vino" to DOCG
  • Explore Tuscany's underappreciated white varietal called Vernaccia di San Gimignano
  • Taste Sangioves in it's Rosato or Rose form
  • Finish off the night with one of Tuscany's specialties known as Vin Santo.

$30 per person includes your class, light cheese and crackers to accompany the tasting and $15 gift certificate to purchase wines after the class.

This is a wine appreciation class to further educate your palate through tasting a variety of wines in a professional manner.
