Italian wine has never been more relevant. Italy boasts a glorious past, and stands out as a dominant global wine producing region, yet the future promises great excitement with the discovery, re-introduction and ongoing use of Ancient varietals that no other country can lay claim to. Join us and delight in the discovery!
The wines of Italy are by far the world’s most diverse and unique. It is her diversity in geography, climate, culture and cuisine, and a stunning abundance of native grape varietals that give Italy the distinction of the most fascinating country for wine enthusiasts.
Scuola del Vino, in cooperation with wine professionalTyler Dawson, APCI Canadaand Glowbal Restaurant Group,has been established to celebrate and advance the appreciation for Italian wine – past, present and future – through a range of wine courses meant for passionate consumers and trade professionals. Our approach to learning is experiential! We emphasize tasting a diverse range of wines, guided by wine professional Tyler Dawson, who provides his unique on-the-ground perspectives within historical, cultural and cuisine contexts. And what better place to learn about and to appreciate Italian wines than Italian Kitchen, where you can indulge in a vast selection of exceptional artisan Italian foods and experience the true and unique characteristics and ambiance of modern Italian hospitality culture.
Italy blushes with an embarrassment of Rosato – Italian rosé. There are almost 250 appellations in Italy that are entitled to produce pink wines. This doesn’t include sparkling or dessert wine styles, nor does it include the coppery Ramato Pinot Grigio, a traditional wine style popularized during the time of the Republic of Venice.
Italy thinks and drinks pink in almost every wine-producing corner of the country. Each province boasts a diverse range of pink wine styles, with a multitude of varietals, colours and hues.
We will sample a range of styles, varietals, methods of production, and explore and discuss the versatility of Rosato in a cuisine context.
We are excited to present these different styles of Rosato, selected for their unique characteristics:
Ramato Pinot Grigio
