- $59 for an Italian wine class for two ($140 value)
Although Italy has historically grown more grape varietals across more of its surface area than France or Spain, the concept of fine wine has only been adopted relatively recently. This is the subject of The Wine Steward's Secrets of Italian Wines class, which covers the Boot’s long winemaking history with special attention to choosing the best vintages from various regions and pairing wines with food.
During the class, students sample six Italian wines complemented by an antipasto plate. Secrets of Italian Wine classes take place on Fridays from 7 to 9 p.m. from January 10 through April 25, 2014.
The Wine Steward
Owner Svetlana Yanushkevich grew up on the southern peninsula of Ukraine, in a territory renowned for its 2,000-year-old winemaking tradition. After moving to the US in 2002, she built upon that foundation by managing wine programs at prestigious restaurants and earning a diploma from the renowned Wine and Spirit Education Trust in London. In 2013, she purchased The Wine Steward, where she hand-selects a wide range of wines from around the world including malbecs from Argentina, shirazes from Australia, and reislings from Germany. Here guests gather and glean Svetlana's global wine knowledge, which has taken them on seven-day guided tours of Piedmont Italy's most prestigious wineries. Back in the shop, collectible wines, artisan cheeses, and gourmet foods parade across the shop's shelves, and wine education events, such as weekly complimentary tastings, let novices ingest loads of wine-related facts without having to eat the pages of their Wine for Dummies book.
