Understanding styles, appellations, producers and vintages are the most fun part of this trip. Barbera is also a great companion when we refer to food and wine pairings.
We will start with an overview from Piemont to Lombardia regions, learning about the most famous appellations of Alba, Asti and the Oltrepo Pavese. At the end of this class, you will be able to recognise the principal area of production, the characteristics of this grape and start understanding the potential ageing and styles of this grape—definitely a great beginning of a great journey!
