17 May MASTERCLASS SERIES: June Session | Winter Solstice 5×5
This June, we celebrate the shortest days of the year with a unique, condensed Masterclass showcasing Italian wines!
We love all things Italian, and here is your chance to share in our passion. Taste five interesting Italian varieties matched to a selection of five Italian cheeses, seated in the comfort and warmth of our premium wine room. Our knowledgeable team will run three sessions each afternoon, explaining each variety, their origin and why we grow or import these wines, as well as the art of pairing cheese and wine — all in 30 minutes!
Tasting list and details follow.
