Situated between Emilia-Romagna to the north, and Lazio to the south, lies the picturesque Italian wine region of Tuscany. Very few other wine regions in the world capture the hearts of wine lovers as easily upon first glance. The combination of beautiful rolling hills full of vineyards and olive groves, medieval hilltop villages, delicious local cuisine, and the incredible red and white wines produced have for decades drawn people to this region.
Rich in history, with records on viticulture dating back to the 8th century BC, Tuscan wine played an important role across many centuries in Italy. Despite being the country's fifth largest wine region, the wines of Tuscany are some of the most respected and sought after in all of Italy. Today names like Sassicaia, Tignanello, Biondi Santi, and many more sit alongside the very greatest wines in the world.
But where does one get started with the incredible wines of Tuscany..Chianti? Montalcino? What exactly is a super Tuscan? On the 20th of May we'll be running a tasting of 8 different wines from Tuscany. Not only will we go into each wine, but we’ll also talk about the history of Tuscany, producers, styles, vineyards, and much more. This tasting is designed to be fun and interactive with no prior knowledge assumed.
