Vino revs up its engines to take you on a tasting trip through Italy’s southern wine country
Vino’s Spring wine classes continue this Wednesday, April 22 with On The A16: Naples to Bari, a virtual tasting trip taking you on a wine journey through Italy’s south, along the A16 highway. Often referred to as the “autostrada dei due mari“, the A16 runs almost coast-to-coast across the width of the peninsula, from the bay of Naples to the Adriatic, up over the spine of the Appenines and finishing in the town of Canosa in the province of Bari.
This famous highway cuts deep through wine country, roughly following the ancient Via Traiana across highlands of limestone and volcanic ash. Vino’s Jim Hutchinson, DWS, will be behind the wheel to guide you through this tasting tour. Passengers will stop to sample some of southern Italy’s most celebrated grape varieties, including Falanghina, Fiano, Aglianico, Primitivo and Nero di Troia.
You too can get your motor running for just $65 (price includes tolls and gas) and enjoy great southern Italian wines along the way. Class will begin promptly at 6:30pm.
