ONLINE COURSE Tour of Italy
Tour of Italy with Jonny
Italy is the world's largest producing country and has more than 400 different grape varieties to offer (with more being discovered thanks to the latest genetic plant and DNA science). With such diverse climate zones and soil types, each region retains a very individual feel, rightly proud of it's culture, food and wine styles.
In this fun online course Jonny shares his knowledge and wine stories with you as he looks at 12 of his favourite wine styles from Italy from north to south. We have put together a great selection of wines (specially discounted for us) so that you can taste the wines along with Jonny each week.
** When you book your place we will email you with joining instructions and a link for you to purchase the 12 bottle taster case. Please order the wine by Mon 25th May in order to get the case delivered in time. **
This course will really open your eyes to the amazing wine styles that Italy has to offer.
We will be taste some lovely wines made from the following regions: Piemonte, Veneto, Friuli, Emilia Romagna, Marche, Abruzzo, Toscana, Puglia and Sicily.

Join Jonny as he talks about different wine regions and wine styles each week and brings them to life for you with a series of images, videos and anecdotes. These online tatsings last just under an hour and are fun and interactive with lots of opportunities to ask questions. He will host each tasting session live at 7pm over 4 consecutive Tuesdays. Each tasting session will last for approx 50 minutes. Unable to commit to each evening? We are recording each tasting session so you can watch and review them later on.
Each evening, we will also be tasting three wines that are representative of the styles discussed during that evening's session. A case of each wine covered throughout the course (12 in total) will be available to order for anyone signing up for the course. You don't have to drink all of the bottle for the three wines we taste each session of course. A simple wine preservation device like a vacuum or blanket system will keep your wine fresh for a day or two more.
As this is a live online tasting only one place needs to be booked per computer or tablet.
