The Wines of Abruzzo: A Bright Future

VIDEO: Kevin Day and Bob Paulinski MW Host a 90-Minute Class on This Compelling Italian Wine Region

< 1 min read

On Sunday, October 8, 2023, my friend Bob Paulinski MW joined us for an in-depth look at the rise of Abruzzo — an Italian wine region that has long been defined by volume and enormous production scale, but is now finding its footing in the fine wine world with surprising white wines, flavorful rosé and finely-tuned, versatile Montepulciano d’Abruzzo reds.

This class was open to the public, but the recorded video is only available to paying subscribers of Opening a Bottle, who can view it by using the password below.
