We will be joined by the Director of the Consortium, two of the area’s top producers and Lugana DOC's US brand Ambassador. Participants will have an exclusive opportunity to learn more about the region’s viticulture, winemaking and marketing from industry insiders.
Don’t miss this chance to learn first hand. Perfect for students studying toward the IWS qualification or for anyone interested in learning more about some of Italy’s most exciting wines! Those of you lucky enough to get your hands on a bottle of Lugana liquid gold are welcome to taste along with us!
Maurizio Broggi, DWS, FWS, is the Education Director for the Italian Wine Scholar (IWS) program. During an eight-day summer tour, he led a group of IWS educators through three of Italy’s northern wine producing regions, Trentino, Franciacorta and Lugana.
Located on the beautiful southern side of Lake Garda, the Lugana DOC is home to the Turbiana-based white wines that are increasingly attracting recognition thanks to their fresh acidity, full-body, versatility and ageing potential.
The influence of Lake Garda and the characteristic local clay soils combined with the unique characteristics of the Turbiana grape produces some of the most distinctive white wines of Italy.
