Italian Wine

Online Wine Classes

Do you want to learn more about Italian native grapes and wine? Then book virtual Zoom online wine classes and tastings with Petra and select from one the menu topics. This is a great way to learn and engage from the comfort of your home! And you don’t have to (and absolutely shouldn’t) do it alone!

Invite your friends, and reconnect over wine! You can book anything from a single class to a package of multiple classes on different topics.

Each class will last from a minimum of one hour to a max of 2 hours – I will work with you and build a schedule that satisfies your needs.

Here are some of the topics we will cover during the on-line classes:

  • Varietal Masterclasses – in those we will go deep in discussing some of the most important Italian varietals (Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Aglianico, Verdicchio, Vermentino etc…)
  • Regional Classes – in those we will focus on specific regions, their winemaking history and traditions and their most important varietals and wines
  • How to taste wine – in these classes we will focus on the tasting part and you will learn everything about how to use your senses and how to gain confidence understanding how to judge the overall quality of a wine!
  • How to pair wine and food – for these classes I will be joined by Chef Filippo Piccini who is also a trained Sommelier and we will talk about the secrets behind pairing wine and food!

Let me guide you through the beautiful world of all of Italy’s regions, their grapes and wines.

Special prices available for groups of 10 or more. Send me an email for more information!
