Great Wines from Italy’s Northeast with Michael Franz

2 hours, $85


Venice is among the world’s most picturesque cities, and its powerful magnetism prevents many visitors from venturing far beyond its striking scenery. However, Venice also happens to be the hub of some of the best wine made on the planet. In this class, we’ll venture out from Venice to taste wonderful wines from Valpolicella, Amarone and Soave to the west, and also head north to taste amazing, high-end Prosecco as well as top whites and reds from Trentino, Alto Adige and Friuli.  And if you think the reds from the northeast are mere afterthoughts to Pinot Grigio, you are in for some very pleasant surprises….
