Southern Italian wine has long taken a back seat to the quality and popularity of its Northern neighbors.  Modern winemaking techniques such as grape selection and vineyard management have helped in the struggle to overcome what was a considered average quality, low recognition wine. Planting the right grape in the right location, restricting yields, harvesting at the right time, and the introduction of expert consultants has made all the difference. The same grapes have flourished in different locations, producing much higher quality. Relatively unknown grapes like Nerello, Mascalese and Grillo have come into fashion again. We will be tasting wines from Campania, Sicilia, Puglia, and other Southern regions so you can become more familiar with them and their rising popularity.

Instructors:  Richard Unti and Robert Peters have taught at the Main Line School, Temple U. (Ambler Campus) and the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill.  They are members of the Society of Wine Educators.
