If you’re not familiar with Nebbiolo then you’re missing out on some superb Italian wines! This grape expresses itself differently depending on where it’s grown, and its ideal conditions can be found in the north-west of Italy, more specifically in the villages of Barolo and Barabesco. Nevertheless, Nebbiolo is more than just the “king and queen” of Italian wines. A young Nebbiolo is the perfect every-day type of wine, ideal with food and just as enticing with a slight chill, and it’s not just grown in the one area of Piemonte. The grape has also found a home further north in the village of Gattinara, and in the alpine valley that opens to Lake Como, producing a similar style of wine to the rich Amarone. However you want to drink Nebbiolo, Eataly offers the full gamut of this delicate grape variety that produces some of the best Italian wines. In this tasting class, guests will:

  • Taste 4 wines made from Nebbiolo grapes
  • Discuss the wines and their regions of origin with an Eataly sommelier
  • Learn more about pairing food and wine
  • Take home tasting notes
