Course Description


Can’t get away for that European dream vacation this year? Close your eyes, swirl your wine glass, and breathe in deeply the aroma of the wine. You will think that you’re in sunny Italy. Antonio Molesini will bring his own unique perspective from years in the wine business to introduce you to Italian wines, both reds and whites, which hit the target of quality and price. Along the way you will learn about the winemaking process and absorb something of the history, geography, and culture of Italy. We will sample 6 wines each class, and Antonio will discuss the background and characteristics of each wine. Light snacks will be served to complement the wines. There will be one class during the summer semester at Matherne’s Downtown

If you intend to register for a CE course or program, you can determine whether you meet English proficiency requirements by self-assessment prior to enrolling.
