Wines of Italy
Adult Enrichment / Food & Drink -
Italy is a world of wine unto itself, boasting 20 individual growing regions that produce some of the best and most distinctive wines anywhere. Taste your way through Italy’s best wine regions and learn about the grapes that flourish there. The wines we try will include deep brooding reds like Barolo and Chianti as well as some crisp whites such as Pinot Grigio and Vermontino that garner less attention but are equally brilliant. A wine tour of Italy can’t be complete without some sparkling wine, including Prosecco and Moscato d'Asti. If you aren’t already a devoted fan of Italian wine, prepare to be amazed. Tuition includes a $25 beverage fee. For students 21+.
