Vino da Tavola - The People's Wines of Italy
This tasting will bring together some of the humble and unsung wines of Italy. Italian wine has a long history of the table, regional wines which are modestly priced and designed to be consumed with local cuisine. While the regions of Piemonte and Tuscany have risen to the heady heights of international acclaim (and in many cases corresponding prices), the majority of Italian wine remains in the grasp of the everyday consumer and with price tags suitable for everyday consumption. Added to that picture is the seemingly endless refashioning of the plethora of indigenous varieties and you’ve got a super exciting wine scene.
