Course Information

What will I be learning?

Italy is composed of 20 regions. Each has a rich and diverse heritage: historically, geographically and culturally. On our virtual tour of the following regions we'll discover the varied landscape, ancient towns and villages, the history, culture, and wine making practices associated with these Italian wine regions.

During each session we will include topics such as local food and wine, with an optional tasting of a wine and regional food (cheeses, prosciutto, olives, etc.) to be agreed prior to each session.


There are 10 sessions to this course. Each session lasts for 1.5 hours.

The following regions will be covered:

  • Umbria
  • Lazio
  • Abruzzo
  • Molise
  • Campania
  • Puglia
