What you'll learn in this wine and cheese class:

Italy only officially became a country in 1861 and it’s no wonder—each region is wildly different, with its own customs and traditions. 

What does that mean for your wine and cheese enjoyment? Italy has an incredible range of wine and cheese to offer, and you will get to enjoy some of the best of it in this class! From elegant Piedmont to storied Sicily, we’ll be covering some of the greatest hits, as well as under-the-radar favorites. 

Join writer and Astor instructor Christine Clark for an interactive tasting experience where we’ll dive into the delicious riches that Italy has to offer, build a vocabulary to describe Italian wine and cheese, and compare methods of production. You’ll also walk away with pairing techniques, knowing how to pick favorites for every budget, and with some tricks up your sleeve to always find the best bang for your buck! 

Classes are 2 hours long, including a Q&A session with Astor Center Instructor Christine Clark.

What you can expect:

  • 1 welcome glass of Italian wine
  • 6 tasting pours of Italian wine
  • 6 Italian cheeses to highlight specific characteristics in each wine
  • A 20% discount on all wines tasted to use in-store after class

What you will learn:

  • How Italian wine and cheese are made and how production methods vary by region, and create different flavors and styles
  • The geography and traditions associated with various Italian wines and cheeses
  • How pairings can change your perception of a wine or cheese’s flavor, and why regional pairings often work so well

  • How to find and take home wines and cheeses you know you’ll love
