As the often overused saying goes: Barolo is the king of wine and the wine of kings. Named after the major village in the zone, it is made exclusively from nebbiolo grapes grown around the towns of Barolo, La Morra, Monforte di Alba, Serralunga and Castigilone Faletto. Each of these communes produces Barolo of slightly different personalities. For instance the wines of La Morra are silky and feminine while the wines of Serralunga are more robust and even more tannic in their youth.

This intensive masterclass, hosted by PWS Director Michael McNamara, has become an annual PWS event for Barolo advocates (and those wanting to learn more about this fascinating wine).  The masterclass will help unravel some of the complexities of this remarkable wine region.

From vineyard and communal differences and their profound effect on the variety, traditional versus modern vinification techniques and the essential interplay between Barolo and the food of the region. All will be examined in detail using the wines of the greatest producers in the zone and using food (a dinner is part of the evening) to demonstrate the brilliant combination between the two.
