Vino’s Winter wine classes continue on Wednesday with an exciting new addition to our schedule, Wines of Puglia, presented in association with Vino 2010.
When talk turns to Italian wine, Puglia is unlikely to be the first region on most Americans’ lips, but the country’s southern tip (Puglia forms the heel of Italy’s boot) once surpassed Sicily and Veneto in terms of wine production. Today output is still prolific in the region, where an abundance of local grape varieties — including the white Verdeca and Bombino and red Primitivo and Negroamaro — provide fruit for such popular and diverse appellations as Castel del Monte, Nardò, Squinzano and Salice Salentino. Get to know these wines for yourself at our first ever Puglia-themed class!

Organized by the Italian Trade Commission, Vino 2010 Italian Wine Week is the biggest Italian wine convention ever held outside of Italy, featuring events, panels and tastings throughout the city from February 2-6.
