Wines of Southern Italy and the Islands (Thursday, July 27th)
The wines of the south may not be household names like their counterparts in other regions but they are still bold, full bodied and satisfying. Plus, like most of the wines of Italy, they are great food wines. We'll study the main regions of the area - Campania, Sicily and Sardinia - and focus on signature varietals from each. It's a great way to explore beyond the Barberas and Barbarescos we all know so well.

Wines of France (Thursday, August 24th)
As we continue our tour of the of the significant wine regions of the world we turn our attention toward two regions in France. Both are an important source for a range of wines - from simple table varieties to complex, age-worthy offerings. In Bordeaux, there are thousands of growers producing millions of bottles of wine but we'll focus on the most important grapes in the region. Next we look at Provence, a region considered by many to one of France's most underrated. In addition to its signature rose, they also produce high quality red and white wines as well.

Wines of South America (Thursday, September 28th)
As we continue our tour of the of the significant wine regions of the world we turn our attention to the Southern Hemisphere. Even though it doesn't always get the attention, South America is home to some of the hottest wines on the market today. Until recently, the region consumed most of the wine it produced. Now, quality wines are being produced with an eye on the export market. The result is some incredibly good wines that can be had less expensively than wines of equal quality produced in Europe and elsewhere. We'll guide you on the countries, producers and varietals that you should look for on the shelves of your local wine store.
