Italy boasts over 3,000 registered grape varieties, with as many as 15,000 varieties produced by over 2,000 wine growers each with their own culture, soil type and micro-climates. It is no wonder Italian wines can be hard to understand, but with professionals at your side, you can really fall in love with these wines if you have not already done so.

Wine experts and local distributors Nathalie and her partner Stephan offer about 100 wines made by small, medium and award winning producers from all over Italy and with an emphasis on high quality organic and biodynamic wine growers. They also blend and private label some of the Umbrian wines themselves. They invite you to join them for a masterclass in English during which time you will sample 3 wines and a light 4 course meal.
