The Wine History of Italy with Tanya Morning Star


Italy has a unique history among European wine-producing countries. This webinar will explore the factors influencing contemporary Italian wine from the Roman era to the present, with a focus on the accelerated pace of transformative events over the past 170 years, which have shaped contemporary Italian wines. Italian wine can feel overwhelmingly complex, but when one understands the context of how and why Italian wine became so multifold and diverse, the thrill and surprise of modern Italian wine become accessible without stress.
