Barolo and Barbaresco Masterclass

Few wine varieties command as much interest and passion as Nebbiolo. This beguiling variety when done well strikes an unparalleled balance between fruit, acidity and tannin making it one of the world’s most cellar worthy wines. No one does it better than it’s spiritual home, Italy’s famed Piedmont region.

MW Wines is proud to invite you to a Barolo and Barbaresco Masterclass featuring 14 wines, including wines from such legendary producers as Giacomo Conterno, Bruno Giacosa and Chiara Boschis. Our host for the journey will be David Ridge, a wine industry veteran of over 30 years who’s been importing Barolo into Australia for over a decade. David’s deep knowledge of the Piedmont region is unrivalled here, and he will guide us through the communes of Barbaresco, Castiglione Faletto, Serralunga, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo and La Mora. It should be a fascinating journey.
