Wine & Dine : Italian style

Wine and dine with Neil Courtier from Grape Sense
7.30 – 10.00 pm


There maybe thousands of producers in Italy and almost the same number of grape varieties grown, which in the past put an emphasis on volume rather than quality. Although making a change, is almost as difficult as crossing the road in Rome's rush-hour, the shift towards wines with real style, individuality and 'drinkability' has taken place. Join me to taste eight pace-setting Italian wines that are quite brilliant with food too.
