Wine Tripping to Northern Italy

Lombardy, Italy

My favorite annual wine conference is finally here! And this year it is in Northern Italy!!!

  • There are over 350 different varietals in Italy over 20 growing areas
  • Lake Garda is the home to many incredible wines
  • Tuscany is NOT the only fine wine region in Italy
  • Italian wine making is 4000 years old
  • I will be tasting/sharing about many varietals most Americans never have the opportunity to taste
  • Also tasting the classics: Barolo & Barbaresco (Nebbiolo), Chianti & Chianti Classico (Sangiovese), Amarone & Valpolicella (Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella)
  • The Bardolino wine festival is the same weekend I will be in Lombardy, that should be interesting!
  • Hoping to stop in Verona and see Juliet’s house
  • I will be sharing all of this with you in my blog and on my insta and fb: artisanwinegrp11
