Valpolicella, Ripasso, and Amarone

Twin Cities Wine Education presents
Valpolicella, Ripasso, and Amarone
A comprehensive class exploring the greatest wines of the Veneto

They are three of the great wines of Italy, born from the same vines. Yet each serves a specific purpose when it comes to food and wine pairing, and the history of why they were created. Welcome to Valpolicella, Ripasso, and Amarone.
The one thing that joins these three wines together is the Corvina grape. We’ll cover this great variety while enjoying great wines from a top notch producer, comparing their Valpolicella to their Ripasso to their Amarone. Special emphasis will be on the geography of the region, and the range of styles of all three wines that you can find depending on the location of the vineyard. Of course a little bite from the kitchen of Scusi will accompany the afternoon.
The class ends at 4pm, which also happens to be when the Scusi Wine Bar opens for Happy Hour. Plan on sticking around after class!
