Class 1 Review: Northern Italy

Wine is meant to tell a story.

It can tell you the story of its makers, its land, its past and even its future. If you’re lucky, you’ll come across someone as good at that storytelling as Robin Riddell Jones.

In the first class, Robin presented wines from Northern Italy. The cooler temperatures and rolling hills create unusually diverse soils in its four regions, yielding some of the most prestigious, elegant wines in the world. From Piedmont, Veneto, and Trentino-Alto Adige to Friuli-Venezia Giulia, this class explored each territory and what makes its indigenous grapes and wines so special.
