Wine-tasting classes, held on Wednesdays 7 p.m.–9 p.m., are split into two parts. First, students learn how to identify their favorite vintages by comparing aromas, tastes, and textures. Along the way, they learn about the wines’ regions of origin and the winemaking process. After that, the class focuses on pairing food with wine.

Italian cooking classes, led by chef Francesca Bencivenga, are held Wednesdays and Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The class imparts techniques for concocting famed Italian dishes and regional specialties. Dishes run the gamut from appetizers and desserts to main courses, and classes conclude with a food and wine tasting. Each class revolves around a different theme, listed here.

Società Dante Alighieri

The Miami branch of the Società Dante Alighieri was founded in 1997, more than a century after the society was founded in Rome. Its aim is to celebrate Italian culture and serve as a social hub for Italians. Working in tandem with its principle partner, the Consulate General of Italy in Miami, the society hosts language courses—including Italian, Portuguese, and Latin—and doles out PLIDA Italian proficiency exams and certificates. In addition, they offer cooking and wine classes that teach students how to concoct regional Italian specialties and appreciate the differences between Italian wine and tomato sauce served in wineglasses.
