Very Good seminar. A whole new world is now opened to me! Thank you!
I thoroughly enjoyed this detailed but measured introduction to the history of Italian wine. Although sophisticated and specific, this seminar was not overwhelming or intimidating. On the contrary, it was a great confidence-builder that included clear visuals and practical advice for every budget. I loved the way in which Rachel broke down the map of Italy, region by region, explaining its native grapes and their various applications. Rachel's suggestions for pairings, whether dining out or cooking at home, were terrific. I feel equipped to tackle the aisles at my wine store at home or the winelist at a local trattoria or ristorante during my next (hopefully soon) trip back to Italy. Grazie mille, Rachel, for an evening well spent!
An Italian wine regions overview, the areas, grapes and wines to look for in each area. The food pairing enhanced the presentation. Rachel is open, knowledgeable and enjoys sharing with others. A great tour of Italy.
