Introduction to Italy, Thursday 14th January 2021


The price above is per household and includes everything you'll need for this tasting, which we'll deliver to your doorstep ahead of this event.

A complex wine country with hundreds of indigenous grape varieties, Italy can be baffling even to the well-versed, and downright daunting to the uninitiated. This evening, however, is designed to demystify the region and leave you feeling confident to tackle your next Italian wine list with confidence and gusto. We’ve selected wines to showcase Italy’s classic regions, along with some slightly more left-field choices.

We will arrange a delivery of a selection of wines from Italy (6 x 75cl bottles), along with a set of glassware and a corkscrew directly to your home. In addition, we’ve partnered with Paxton & Whitfield, who will deliver three artisan cheeses to accompany the wines in the tasting. On the evening of the event, you’ll log in via Zoom where our expert host will take you through three of the wines. The ticket price includes full-sized bottles of the wines, so you can share the experience with family and friends, as well as a selection of Italian cheeses. The virtual tasting will start at 6.30pm and last for one hour and 15 minutes. Once a ticket has been booked, we’ll email you to confirm the details of your delivery.

Wines to be tasted on the evening:

2019 Gavi di Gavi, Bric Sassi, Roberto Sarotto, Piedmont
2018 Martedi, Paestum Rosso, Vigneti Tardis, Campania
2015 Valpolicella Superiore, Marion, Marcellise, Veneto
2015 Chianti Classico, Sa'etta, Riserva, Monte Bernardi, Tuscany
