Northern and Central Italy

Northern and Central Italy is a huge area to cover with six wines! There’s a good geographical spread with lots to talk about. We'll not only be exploring Piemonte and Tuscany, but we'll be looking at some of the less famous regions as well. We find it a little strange that the Italian regions aren’t embedded in our psyche as are the French appellations, so we’ll do our best at this tasting to redress that balance.

Part of our Virtual Tasting Series, each month we host a themed tasting designed to enhance your understanding and enjoyment of wine. We stress the importance of understanding wine culture, history and tradition by tasting and anecdotes. This is informal, intuitive and inspirational. We will be sending out tasting kits with six wine samples and handy information to help you through the evening. All you will need is some glasses and access to Zoom.

We are also offering 6x60ml sample bottle option - please see our Tasting page for more details.

Syrah, Viognier and Syrah-Viognier

The varieties of the northern Rhone are two of the wine world’s most noble. There is refined indulgence of Syrah, or Shiraz, that has so many expressions of ripeness. The exotic exuberance of Viognier can be powerful enough for just a tiny portion to make a big difference to a blend with Syrah. Some of the world’s leading proponents of these grapes are on offer here.

Southern Italy

Wines from southern Italy have often been overlooked in favour of the better-known wine regions of the north, but the south boasts a warm Mediterranean climate, rich volcanic soils and abundance of ancient native grape varieties. Plus, recent years have seen the regions of southern Italy make dramatic inroads into producing wines of real quality. Lots to talk about, and lots of grapes to discover!
