Weekend Wine Tasting 'Climate Change, the Italian Way'

Climate change is real...at least as it applies to Italian wine growing regions. This week, our line-up more than exemplifies what we mean. Nothing is more vast than the multitude of micro-climates among the Italian viticultural areas. From the frigid, Alpine peaks to the sun-kissed sands of the South, Italy's wine regions are some of the best to study when it comes to how temps and terroir affect what goes into bottle. Come in this weekend for a glimpse of just this. We will examine, in our most scientific and swirly way, what exactly the warm sun does to otherwise high-acid, white varietals, and what a drop in temp can mean for otherwise bold and brawny reds. We promise to make believers out of you yet.
