The Italian Wine DOCG course will be conducted at the historic
castle La Torre that is located close to the River Arno in Florence.
The castle has a historical significance in relation to the visits
of several famous personalities like King Charles VIII of France
and Pier Capponi of Florence. Visitors enrolled to this wine tasting
course can be a part of the historical castle and explore its
wine cellars and magnificent vineyards. The course will help you
appreciate Italian DOCG wines. The four hour course in English
will be conducted by a professional wine taster.
The participants can take home a wine tasting kit and can also
enjoy a visit to the wine cellars and vineyards. The session would
comprise techniques involved in appreciating some Italian DOCG
wines, a briefing on the kind of grapes used for making these
wines and the effects of soil and climate on the wine quality.
Another interesting aspect of wines is serving them in an appropriate
manner. There are several points to be kept in mind while doing
so. The course will update you on how to serve wine, about the
different kinds of wine glasses, cork and corkscrews, wine bottles
and the use of the Aroma Wheel.
