Guided Wine Tasting with Master Sommelier Craig Collins featuring Tommasi wines from the Veneto


On September 27, we are thrilled to welcome Master Sommelier Craig Collins for a guided tasting of the wines of Tommasi, one of the most important quality producers in the Veneto since 1902. Whether you are brand new to Italian wines or want to dive a bit deeper into your studies, you won’t want to miss this special tasting. Craig will introduce you to five classic Tommasi wines from Valpolicella and the surrounding region, including Amarone, one of Italy's most popular red wines ranking up there with Barolo and Brunello. Glass by glass, you’ll explore what sets each wine apart -- from grapes and terroir to harvest, bottling, aging and more. Along the way, you’ll also learn about the Veneto region and the traditions and techniques of the vineyards in the area. In between wine tastings, you’ll enjoy two regionally inspired antipasti, prepared by the Chef of La Scuola.


In this class guests will: 

  • Learn about Tommasi wines with special guest, Master Sommelier Craig Collins 
  • Taste through 5 Tommasi wines 
  • Enjoy 2 Antipasti dishes, paired with the wines 
  • Take home tasting notes for each wine

About Tommasi: Tommasi has always been a standard bearer of the Amarone appellation, and one of the most important quality producers in the Veneto. Established in 1902 around the family home in Pedemonte in Valpolicella, the winery has grown and expanded into the choicest areas of the region under the guidance of the many generations of the Tommasi family. The winery is known above all for its classic approach to winemaking in Valpolicella, favoring elegance and balance, and paying homage to the winemaking tradition of the Veneto.


Class duration is approximate and may vary by 10-15 minutes. Seating is first-come first-served. All guests planning to consume alcohol must be able to produce a valid government-issued identification to prove they are 21 or older
