Hello, and welcome again to another edition of what has become my favorite online class — Barbaresco and Barolo. These neighboring appellations in Italy’s northwestern Piemonte region offer some of the most complex, soul-stirring wines in the world. How these wines came into being is a story tied of an ancient seabed, of “tongues of land” lifted up, of the House of Savoy, of an unflappable people, and the of the great grape that unites it all: Nebbiolo.

This class runs for about 90 minutes, and there is a lot to cover. Below the embedded video you will find the password to activate the play mode. As always, these classes are available only to Opening a Bottle subscribers.
