Mountain Wine, Mountain Cheese

Jim Hutchinson comes down from the mountain for a brand new tasting class this Wednesday

The Dolomites in northern Trentino create one of Italy's most dramatic mountain landscapes.

From the northern Alpine ranges, down along the spine of the Apennines and onto the islands, Italy is a country of mountains. Virtually every region has a significant peak or range and much of that topography has, for millenia, been cradle and crucible to unique cultures whose dialects, traditions and foodways can vary dramatically from valley to valley.

The view from Turin's Via Cernaia looking towards Stazione Porta Susa and the Alps beyond. The constant, imposing presence of mountains on many Italian towns cannot be underestimated.

This Wednesday, March 18, join us at Vino for Mountain Cheese, Mountain Wine, a brand new addition to our class schedule. Participants will sample six of Italy’s finest mountain cheeses, including Fontina, Talleggio and Robiola, each paired with a carefully selected wine from the same region. Jim Hutchinson, DWS (a man for whom there ain’t no mountain high enough) will be your guide in this tasting expedition, in which you’ll discover just some of the extraordinary products that have emerged over time from the Italian highlands.
