Event Report: Vintages Pre-Release Tasting — Illustrious Italians with Special Guest - Italian Wine Scholar Instructor Matt Webb
Reported by Christian Marcoux
Vino Italiano con amore!
I wasn’t a big Italian wine drinker before attending this event. I only knew there were many types of grapes and styles, making it difficult to choose, and some are very expensive. However, thanks to the President of the Guild, Bill Ellis, and his special guest and instructor at the Italian Wine Scholar, Matt Webb, I have changed my mind.
This duo of Italian wine lovers made us taste 13 wines in four flight; the first of which was a flight of white wines. I was very grateful to have a chance to taste such amazing wine while receiving great insight from Matt about Italian winemaking and regions.
My three wine choices for Hidden Gem, Best Value and Best of the Night were quite challenging to choose.
