Why take this online class?

No coincidence that the most famous and widely known proverb about wine is in Italian - “In vino veritas”- “Truth can be found in wine”. Portraits of Italy often include magnificent images of a country filled with cultural class and style - like the iconic Santa Maria del Florence, palais Pitti or other grandioses monuments like Duomo Milan or the Colosseum in Rome. But no image represents Italy like its diversified scenery - The deep green hills of Tuscany with its varied natural landscape encircles the rugged Apennine Mountains, the island of Elba’s beaches on the Tyrrhenian Sea and Chianti’s olive groves and vineyards. An agricultural wonderland, producer of the most perfect wines. During our online class our wine expert will introduce you to the most exquisite product in Italy, - il vino dell’italia; Italian wines.
