Blind Tasting League

Intimidated by the Italian wine section of your favorite wine shop or restaurant wine list?

Fear no more!

We are taking the most popular section of our Around the World in Wine series and going more in-depth. Instead of a quick glossing over of the most important Italian wines and regions, we will delve deeper and talk about the lesser known wines as well. You will leave this class confident and ready to take on an all Italian wine list!

This series will feature two classes, one on the wines of Northern Italy and one for the South.

In the Northern Italian Class, expect to learn about and taste the most famous of Italian wines. Learn about Chianti, Soave, Brunello, Barolo, Amarone and many more. This class will premier on Thursday January 24th from 5:30 until 6:30.

The Southern Italian Class will cover wines and regions south of Tuscany. These will be less famous, richer in style and a better value. Learn about Italian Zinfandel aka Primitivo, the wines of Campania - the ancient Roman equivalent to First Growths, the wines of Sicily and even Sardinia. Drinking the wines from one region will supposedly extend your life, find out why! This class will premier on Thursday January 31st from 5:30-6:30.

The cost for each class is $25 plus tax per person and includes a wine tasting and cheese.


Are you taking a trip? Visiting an exotic wine region? Want to know more about the wines before you get there?

Let us present a private tasting of the wine regions, grapes and traditions you will see when you get over there.
In other words, "know before you go!"
For example, going to Tuscany?
We can introduce you to the varietals you will find on the table in Florence and the foods that would be the best pairing. The days of an all encompassing, overly general, very limited rule of white with fish and red with meat are over!
Your vacation, your honeymoon, your family reunion, the trip you have been planning forever is no time to make a mistake!

Does your restauraunt crew need to step up their wine game? Does your corporate team need to learn to talk about wine like a pro?

We do staff training!

Our talented team of Sommeliers have conducted staff trainings at many restaurants around Western North Carolina as well as educational wine tastings for corporate groups. If your team would benefit from some wine education, contact Andy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to set up your training!

We think of wine as celebration and fond memories with friends and family. But for several millennia, wine has been a part of a darker world. This course will tell tales of how wine was instrumental in major cases of fraud, deceit, murder and grabs for power. You will sip wines similar to those used in these capers while you cross into the dark side.


Coming soon to the Asheville School of Wine.
