Le Vie del Vino
Piemonte "foot of the mountain" Wines
ONLINE WINE EDUCATION
Friday, March 11, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDT via Zoom
Conversation will be in English
Join us for a webinar about Piemonte, one of Italy's greatest wine regions. Piemonte is one of the country's most spectacular-looking regions, tucked in just south of the Alps (Piemonte means " foot of the mountain"), and is home to some the greatest red wines in the world, ranging from Dolcetto to Barbera as well as Barolo and Barbaresco. These last two wines are made from the Nebbiolo varietal, and are powerful reds that can age from 10 to as many as 40 or 50 years in some instances.
Piemonte has also started to become known for its white wines, especially Arneis, but also Gavi and especially Timorasso, which is starting to be an in-demand, powerful white wine.
We will also discuss the ristoranti in Piemonte, especially the local trattorie and osterie, which are home to excellent local cuisine, such as tajarin, the local hand-made pasta as well as other specialities such as vitello tonnato and coniglio (rabbit).
The wine education will be expertly lead by Tom Hyland, a freelance wine writer, educator and photographer specializing in Italian wines. He has visited Italy more than 75 times over the past 20 years from his home base in Chicago. He has written about Italian wines for numerous publications including wine-searcher.com, forbes.com and Decanter in England. He has authored two books on Italian wine: Beyond Barolo and Brunello: Italy’s Most Distinctive Wines and The Wines and Foods of Piemonte. He currently publishes a subscription publication called Italian Wine Report that features reviews of several hundred Italian wines each issue.
All registered participants will be sent the webinar recording.
