Night In Italy (5 Course Wine Dinner) | Boston Wine School @ Caffe Espresso Trattoria
April 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$119.00
Join us for a the ultimate in virtual wine tourism: a wine and food tour of Italy without ever leaving the Boston Wine School! Get yourself ready for a broad range of Italian wines, from crisp Alpine whites to gutsy Sicilian reds. This class is going to experience the whole geography. Wine is produced in every region of Italy, and we are just going to scratch the surface when it comes to exploring the thousands of different varieties and styles of Italian wine.
You’ll experience the culinary sights, smells and tastes of Italy via your wine glass and plate. We believe the best and easiest way to learn about wine is with food. Wine is food, after all, so we are able to make sense of wine when we study it through food. You will begin to taste and understand many of the classic food and wine pairings, but this class will test the “white wine with fish / red wine with meat” rule too.
You’ll taste old favorites and new combos designed to bring strategies for wine and food pairing into focus.
Please understand the food and wine menu are subject to change based on availability, chef creativity, teacher whimsy, and more!
