Italian Whites

By almost any measure, Italy is a powerhouse in the world of wine. It's home to more than 350 officially-recognized grape varietals (out of thousands); it makes more wine than any other country; and it is second only to France in exports to the US. In addition, Italy is home to some of the greatest and most widely-recognized wines in the world. However, most of the accolades are reserved for red wines: Chianti, Barolo, Brunello, Barbaresco, etc. Surprisingly, production cuts the other way; Italy produces more white than red by a wide margin. A lot of this discrepancy is probably due to the fact that a significant proportion of the white wine produced in Italy is inexpensive and undistinguished bulk wine. But what gets lost in the sea of undifferentiated Pinot Grigio are some truly delightful and exceptional wines.

On Wednesday, May 29 from 4pm to 7pm, we're going to highlight a handful of these hidden gems from all over Italy. Join us!

Tickets for our regular Wednesday tastings are $15, and the wines in the lineup are all 10% off during the tasting.
