Wine writer and photographer Kevin Day will lead an introductory class, seminar and virtual wine tasting of Italy’s Barolo and Barbaresco.

Often considered to be the apex of Italian fine wine, the small, Nebbiolo-focused appellations of Barolo and Barbaresco promise a lifetime of intrigue. In this virtual wine tasting and online seminar, Opening a Bottle‘s Editor-in-Chief Kevin Day will take guests on a visual tour of the region’s vineyards and share his insights from the road, as well as lead a tasting of a Langhe Nebbiolo, Barbaresco and Barolo wine (guests must supply their own wines, but as part of your ticket, you will be given a complementary Buyer’s Guide to help with the shopping process).

If you’d like to take part in the interactive, comparitive tasting portion, plan on a budget of $100-$200 for the 3 wines.

Note: Access to all Opening a Bottle virtual tastings is included with a paid subscription to the site ($89/year). Only 8 tickets are available to the general public for this event via Eventbrite. One ticket is good for a single log-in (so no need to buy two tickets if you are a couple). Multiple parties are expected to buy a ticket per party calling in.

We will start promptly at 8pm Eastern (USA time).
