What you'll do

Taste your way through Southern Italy with 3 wines, and get the skinny on this underrated and overlooked wine region.

Our goal is to make wine and wine language accessible to everyone. This is a great class if you are new to Italian wines and are looking to branch out beyond your typical wine “go-tos.” Our classes are interactive and educational, but also have a discussion component.

In these tastings, we will:
- Learn all about the wines and how to taste them
- How to pair food with the wines and discuss local cuisine
- Explore the geographical areas and how they affect the wines
- Learn wine history and language

This event is suitable for wine drinkers of all levels. You don’t need to be a wine pro to contribute – we all have something to learn and share.

Your host, Emilia, is a professional sommelier and wine industry professional.

1) Southern Italy 101 Kit includes:
- Shipment of 3 wines: 2oz each of 1 white, 1 rosé, and 1 red from southern Italy
- Info cards for each wine
- Maps of each region

2) Noble Italian Red
Barolo, anyone? In this class, we will try three red wines from three different and noteworthy Italian wine regions. These wines often appear as collectors’ items and go for a pretty penny. This glass is great for Burgundy and Bordeaux wine drinkers looking to experience a whole new, delicious world.

Kit includes
- Shipment of 3 red wines, 2oz each, of high-end Italian wines
- Info cards for each wine
- Maps of each region
- Wine key

3) The Secret South
The Greeks called Southern Italy, onetria, the land of wine. Despite having such a reputation in the ancient world, our modern day wine culture seems to have forgotten about this magical land. Even amongst wine professionals, this area remains shrouded in mystery. Join us as we explore the back alleyways of the wine world and taste 4 wines from 4 different regions, including an aged white from one of Italy’s best white wine producing regions.

- Shipment of 4 wines, 2oz each of a mix of high-end white and red Southern Italian wines
- Info cards for each wine
- Maps of each region
- Wine key
- Recipe card of a regional Italian dish

We cannot ship non-alcoholic alternatives at this time, but non-drinking guests who do not receive a kit can join as class only for $40/person. The class will still be fun and engaging for non-drinkers, as we will talk about regional cuisine, geography, history, and travel.

Emilia's virtual tasting is incredibly informative and also super fun! With her huge wealth of knowledge, she takes the time to explain things in a way that is down to earth and understandable for a wine lover at any level. She has a way of connecting her audience together during a virtual tasting and making us all feel like we're in the room with her, and translates genuine excitement for the wines being tasted!

Naturally, as a wine professional, my first fear is are the wines going to be any good? These wines were so amazing that I'd be happy to participate for that alone. What I really didn't expect was that I would learn something new, but I did, which was a great surprise. Emilia has it set up so that you can learn something no matter where you are in your wine studies. I can't recommend this more for anyone who likes Italian wine.
