2012 Wine Tastings

e brought the new year in with a wine tasting from the Piedmont Region of Italy.  This northwestern area of Italy is in the foothills of the Alps and is one of Italy's best wine-growing districts.  There is something for everyone from the lightest of whites to sweet sparklers to reds of great longevity.  In February, we traveled South to Italy's third largest wine making region - Tuscany.  Tuscany is a significant part of Italy in quality of wine and certainly holds a special place at the heart of the country - the  home of Chianti.  March found us traveling to the Northeast region of Italy to taste wines from the Veneto region - the home of Amarone.  Some of the Veronese wines tasted this evening included Valpolicella and Soave.  In April, we will be tasting wines from Germany, such as, Reisling, Silvaner, and Muller-Thurgau.
