Join an Italian winemaker and learn how to taste wine—along with homemade chocolate cake!
No matter your Valentine’s Day plans, a wine tasting class and an easy chocolate cake recipe will make them better. In this Online Escape, you’ll virtually join winemaker Pierluigi from his family-owned Tuscan vineyard, Tenuta Torciano, for an Italian getaway and virtual wine tasting at home.
Pierluigi will teach you how to enjoy a romantic Valentine’s Day, Italian style. He’ll tell you about how Italians celebrate the holiday, and which special foods they prepare for a Valentine’s Day meal. You’ll also learn to make a simple, but delicious, chocolate cake using only a few ingredients.
While your cake bakes, join Pierluigi for a wine tasting of two special Italian wines: a sweet, after-dinner wine and a sparkling white wine. No matter what you have on hand to sip during this virtual wine tasting, Pierluigi will demonstrate how to fully experience a new wine and taste its subtleties. (And he knows a thing or two about wine—his family has been making vino for 300 years at their vineyard!)
A virtual trip to Tuscany and wine tasting with an expert is the perfect way to celebrate your Valentine’s Day. At the end of your virtual wine tasting at home, you’ll have a freshly baked cake to enjoy and a new appreciation for wine tasting—a win-win.
