MW Wines Barolo and Barbaresco Masterclass with David Ridge

Wednesday, 18 April



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.

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 Morra. It should be a fascinating journey.
