Ahhh, Italia! Put a glass of robust red in our hands and it won't be long before we start speaking Italian. Okay, start speaking in Italian accents. Okay, start trying to speak in Italian accents by adding "-a" to the end of every word.

Whether or not you're born into the Italian culture, one thing we can all appreciate is a delicious glass of Italian red wine. We've enlisted the help of our friends at Bin 36 to bring you this special session of Wine School.

Class is open to wine enthusiasts of all levels and will include:
-A brief history lesson on the origins of Italian Red
-A comprehensive survey of regional Italian red grapes and wines
-Tastings of each wine described
-Food & wine pairing insights
+ More.

A discussion followed by a hearty Q&A session about the diverse geography, features and extraordinary breadth of Italian wine styles will be included, so come prepared to sip & discuss!

    A lot of learning accompanied by a lot of eating and drinking! It felt more like an interesting dinner party than a class, but as we were leaving, realized that we had learned A LOT about Italian wine - and also quite a bit about Italian culture and history too. Loved the personal stories shared by our Teacher!

Brian Duncan prefers the term wine director to sommelier. With a philosophy that wine should be enjoyable and accessible, he relies on tastings to find his students the perfect glass, letting a guest's personal preference and occasion dictate the suggestions. Brian has recently began working with selected winemakers who share his exacting quality standards to create exceptional wines exclusively for BIN 36, bringing the stories of the wine makers to the table with each glass he shares in class.
