Virtual Wine Class

Written and Produced by Tony Margiotta

Typical wine tastings focus on the aromas and flavors in your glass. 

And that can be fun and even amusing.

But how many times do you need to hear descriptions like sour cherry, citrus, blackberry, chocolate, and tobacco? 

I don’t know about you, but it all sounds the same to me after a while. 

If you’ve ever heard the experts talk about wine, you’ve heard the same descriptors used ad nauseum.  

If you’ve heard one, you’ve heard them all. 

I’m Tony Margiotta, award-winning author of Hidden Gems of Italy. 

And I’d like to take you on a virtual journey across Italy and do it though a glass of wine. 

We’re going to take a deep dive into Italian wine that goes far beyond tasting flavors. 

I’ll be sharing stories about the people and places that have been making wines for centuries. And they can’t be duplicated. 

I’m going to reveal why Italy was called the land of wine 2000 years but today’s Italy is more known for it’s food. 

If you’ve ever been to Italy, I’m going to share with you why the wine tastes better there. 

And I’m going to show you how you can recreate an authentic Italian wine experience in the comfort of your home. 

You’re going to get an up close and personal view of some of the most unique vineyards in Italy. 

You’re going to see exactly what makes great wine different from all the others so you can focus your time only on wines that enrich your experiences.  

You’re going to discover the story of Italian wine culture while sipping on some serious vino that you can’t get anywhere else. 

If your group would like to sign up to have this virtual wine experience with me, all you have do is send me an email at We’ll pick a date and ship some very special artisanal wines from Italy, straight to your door. 

So Get ready for a memorable experience that will transform the way you enjoy the world’s most cherished drink.
