World Wine Series: Italy

Join us as we explore the many beautiful wine regions of Italy! Over 4 weeks you will discover what makes Italy one of the most fascinating wine producing nations in the world!

Italy is possibly the most confusing wine country to navigate. With a huge diversity of grape varieties and wine styles, it's definitely worth taking the time to learn about Italian wines.

We will taste some of the indigenous grapes that help make Italian wines so famous and intriguing, including: Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Garganega, and Barbera. 

We will begin our Italian adventure in the North West of the country (Piedmont), before moving to the North East (Veneto). We'll then wind our way to one of the most famous regions (Tuscany), before finishing up in the warm south (Puglia, Campania, & Sicily).

All sessions are led by a wine tutor and include a digital presentation and full tasting notes.

Course Program:

  • Session 1 - North & North West - Piemonte, Trentino Alto-Adige, Lombardy

  • Session 2 - North-East & East - Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Marche

  • Session 3 - Central Italy - Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo

  • Session 4 - South & Islands - Campania, Puglia, Sicily, Sardinia

What if I miss a session? 

We understand that life can be pretty unpredictable. That's why our courses are flexible, so if you do miss a session you can redeem it at a later date or send a substitute in your place. 

How long do sessions last?

Most sessions will last for 1 hour to 1.5 hours.

Everyone is free to come and go as they please, so if you have to leave early, that is not a problem!


The total fee is $220.

This 4-week journey will take place from the comfort of your own home.
