The Food and Wine of Italy (St. Helena, CA)

How can you not want to “mangia” when you hear the words – pasta, formaggio, gelato, vino? Italy is a country of endless gastronomical diversity from simple, fresh, country dishes to hearty, handmade regional traditions and sometimes ultra-modern, sometimes ageless but always profound flavors. Learn how to taste wines from both top varieties and regions and those vineyards less traveled, plus the history and development of the cheeses, meats, bread, and “dolce” while tasting a curated selection of seasonal wines and foods along the way. Understand what you need in the Italian home kitchen for fun feast, quick but authentic weekday meal or holiday party with entertaining suggestions and recipes too.
