Charlemagne Wine Club - 2016 Tastings

Monday 21 March 2016

Regional Italy presented by Nick FOrth

With a vibrant winemaking history spanning over 2,000 years, and vineyards stretching from the Alps to Sicily, Italy has a range of wines and grapes to compete with any country in the world. While many of those wines are household names, many more are rarely seen outside the country and are not familiar to the majority of wine drinkers.

Nick will be presenting a selection of wines from across Italy. Some are personal favourites, some are wines that he thinks deserve more attention, and others are just interesting in their own right. The final selection is still being considered, but expect wines from Liguria and Campania, Piemonte and Le Marche, and even a blast from the past from Emilia Romagna.

Nick is a long-standing member of Charlemagne, and a frequent visitor to Italy. Having first gone there as a 10 year old, he tasted Asti Spumante at an early age and has never looked back!
