While Italy is a maestro at delivering robust, hearty reds, many of the country’s greatest wines offer an innate sense of buoyancy – without sacrificing flavour or depth. Along with some remarkably agile reds, this seminar will take you through appetite-inducing bubbles, textured whites, and a seriously cheerful pink, as we unlock the secrets to Italy’s extraordinary lightness of being.

Moderators: Filippo Bartolotta, Michaela Morris
