Our family of four adults had a wonderful time taking the Tour of Italy wine tasting class. The wines were fabulous and the instructor did an excellent job of adjusting the class based on our existing knowledge.

This is an excellent class. You get to learn about the history of wine growing in region in addition to sampling the major wines. As others have mentioned, the class sizes are small and it lends to friendly conversation with other participants. Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed this class. A taste of wine with homer and passion thrown in. We were taken on a brief history of wine in Tuscany, together with some classic wine examples. A great introduction to Tuscany and their wines.
