Masterclass: Alto Adige DOC and Etna DOC

Register for free

The consortia of Alto Adige DOC wines and Etna DOC wines have joined forces to host this free masterclass with Master of Wine Nancy Gilchrist.

Event details

Alto Adige is the Italy’s northernmost winegrowing region and over 800 miles away, Etna is one of Italy’s most southerly. Despite this geographical difference, the two regions have some similarities: a long history of top quality production and unique growing conditions. Alto Adige DOC wines are influenced by the varied altitude levels in sub-Alpine valleys, whilst down in Sicily the island’s Mediterranean warmth is tempered by the cooling effect of altitude on Mount Etna and the varied volcanic soils which make these wines unique.

Join Nancy Gilchrist MW for this masterclass where you will have the opportunity to explore a range of both Alto Adige DOC wines and wines from Etna DOC.

Please note this event has been organised by Sopexa on behalf of Alto Adige DOC and Etna DOC. This event is taking place at WSET School London but is not being run by us.
