ABOUT THE WINES:

Italy grows more different kinds of wine grapes than any country in the world -- one reason why exploring Italian wines is so much fun.

 

We will be sampling five different Italian wines, and you will want to experience each one of them.

 

You will be greeted with a glass of bubbly Prosecco, which comes from the Veneto region of Italy and is a favorite starter for any kind of an evening.

 

Our first white wine is an Orvietto Classico Campogrande from the Umbria region. Orvietto is a dry, crisp white wine made from the Procanico grape.

 

Next up is another white wine -- Villa Antinori Bianco, a marvelous blend of five grapes: Mosty Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes from the Tuscan region, with small batches of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Rhine Reisling added for flavor and rounding.

 

Our reds include the iconic Italian wine -- Chianti. This is a Chianti Classico, the best of the best, featuring the wonderful Sangiovese grapes grown in the Chianti region of Italy.

 

Finally, we feature another great blend -- this one a red blend called Cecchi Bonizio, a Super Tuscan that combines Merlot with Sangiovese grapes and comes from the popular Tuscany region. It's rich in fruit and good acidity.

 

As each wine is paired with a mouth-watering Italian appetizer or entree,  you will discover why Italian wine -- and food -- is such a treat.

 

Add in live opera music and travel stories from travel writer Bob Powers and you will have an unforgettable evening, all included in one single price.
