Italian Wine Seminar Series : Taste of Veneto

Italians in DC

Come experience the depth and breadth of Italian wines at a series of 7 seminars.  Each seminar will take you to a different wine producing region of Italy.  You will discover some of the finest wines of that region including a detailed profile of the most relevant characteristics of each wine, its taste, best food pairings and information about the local soil, climate and unique aspects of wine production.  There will also be a brief introduction to other interesting information about each region.  As a result, the evening will combine great Italian wines with the world of art, music, fiction, poetry and movies.

… it’s a fun way to spend an evening, and you will learn something too!

Events will take place on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 PM during the months of January through May 2013.  At the final meeting a farewell dinner will be offered to participants and friends who attended all seminars.
