Attimo Wine Academy
Welcome to the Attimo Wine Academy. During this series of educational and hands on classes, we will learn about all things Italian Wine from learning how to taste, to diving into Piedmont as a whole. Come to one class or all four of them! Individual tickets and descriptions are listed below.
Wines and Vines of Italy Part 1 | 5:30pm-7:00pm | May 9th
From the towering northern peaks of the Alps, down the Apennine spine, all the way to the tip of the boot and the surrounding sea, Italy grows a dizzying array of over 590 documented grape varieties. In this class, we’ll highlight the industrious northern regions, exploring a tasting of regionally autochthonous varieties that contribute to Itlay’s unique identity in the wine world. There’s no question why the ancient Greeks referred to this peninsula as Enotria…the land of wine.
