Vino Nobile, Chianti, and Brunello: classes and tastings
Montepulciano is the ideal place to perfect your Italian while learning something new about the excellent red wine produced here. The mini-courses on wine combine theoretical classes with tastings of red and white wines. The classes are held by a mother tongue Italian teacher, and the tastings are held by a sommelier. The classes cover: territory and vine cultivation, wine production in Montepulciano, characteristics of local wines, and the quality standards for protecting and safe-guarding the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (www.consorziovinonobile.it/main.main.php?lang=ENG), as well as Chianti and Brunello wines, our illustrious neighbours.
The "Speaking about Wine" mini-courses are open to students who have attained an intermediate knowledge of the Italian language. The weekly courses are individual courses and can be started on any Monday. The three-day courses are held on fixed dates and require a minimum of three participants.
