Join us for a the ultimate in virtual wine tourism: a wine and food tour of Tuscany without ever leaving the Boston Wine School! Get yourself ready for a broad range of Tuscan wines, from crisp whites to gutsy bold reds. This class is going to experience the whole geography of what Tuscany has to offer. Wine is produced in every region of Italy, and we are just going to scratch the surface of Tuscany when it comes to exploring the thousands of different varieties and styles of Italian wine.
The evening focuses on a mini-wine tour of the Tuscan region. Appetizers and cheese will be served during class to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing wine and food. You’ll experience the culinary sights, smells and tastes of Italy via your wine glass and plate. By the end of the evening, someone will know their Chianti from Chianti Classico!
After class, put your education to the test over a delicious wine dinner from one of our guest chefs. We’ll make a major food match with a Tuscan white and red specially selected for the menu.
Please understand the food and wine menu are subject to change based on availability, chef creativity, teacher whimsy, and more!
