Texas Wine School Wine Tasting Class: Wines of Piedmont

Texas Wine School

Piedmont, a region that many regard as Italy's premier site for red wines, is located in the Boot's northwest corner. The area boasts nine prestigious DOCG wines (Italy's top wine classification), more than any other Italian wine region. Piedmont is home to six major grape varieties known worldwide. 

This class gives an in-depth overview of the most important wines in Piedmont, with a tasting and examination of each wine, including, Arneis, Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Barolo and Barberesco. The class covers the geographic areas of each wine, the appellations and their meaning, as well as soil composition, micro climates, hillside exposition — and why it all matters.
