The Course

For thousands of years Italians have been producing wine, an essential part of Italian culture and daily life. But with a myriad of diverse indigenous grapes and wine styles (sometimes in the same town!) and a strong culinary history linking regional cuisine to wines Italy can easily become be a very confusing and daunting place.

Whether you enjoy a glass of wine after work, hosting dinner parties or visiting Italian restaurants this is a superb opportunity to expand your knowledge and appreciation of Italian wines.

Over a delicious interactive day in a small group, we'll help you explore and familiarise yourself with this picturesque and romantic country from north to south, by tasting a hand picked selection of some of Italy's finest wines. Through a hands-on and informative itinerary we'll focus on key regions individually and look at features that set its wines apart from other regions of Italy and other parts of the world. 

We'll take a look at food and wine pairing suggestions as we go, highlighting wines to go with everything from seafood to pizza, and sampling some great Italian Cheese, Charcuterie and other produce throughout the day.

Examples of regions we'll look at include:

Northeast Italy: The regions of the Veneto, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, and Trentino-Alto Adige are home to some of the most famous white wines in the world such as Pinot Grigio and Soave, as well the popular sparkling wine Prosecco and a host of decadent rich reds.

Tuscany: One of Italy’s most popular tourist destinations, and home of Chianti and other great Sangiovese wines recognized for their high quality and their ability to pair easily with food.

Sicily: Some of Italy's most intriguing wines come from the volcanic soil in Sicily (from nearby Mount Etna). Sicily’s most prominent red grape variety is Nero d’Avola, but by no means its only one!

Please note: Places on all of our courses are limited, and often sell out - so early booking is always advised to avoid disappointment!

The Abbey Hotel, Bath

A stone's throw away from the beautiful and historic city centre of Bath, there isn't a restaurant in Bath quite like The Abbey Hotel, and few like it anywhere!
