Masterclass: Join Michael Garner to taste the thrilling diversity of Alto Adige

Discover the incredible diversity of Alto Adige at the Decanter Italy Experience 2024.

Join us at the upcoming Decanter Italy Experience, on Saturday 24 February 2024, for a very special masterclass highlighting the thrilling quality and diversity of Alto Adige.

This fascinating corner of northeast Italy – where Alpine freshness combines with Mediterranean charm – is today one of Italy’s most exciting wine-producing regions, with a deep-rooted winemaking and grape growing culture.

Experience the thrilling quality and diversity that Alto Adige has to offer, featuring wines handpicked by Italian wine expert, Michael Garner, Regional Chair for Northern Italy at the Decanter World Wine Awards, to showcase the impressive quality and incredible diversity the region has to offer.

The line-up of wines for the Alto Adige masterclass

Guests will have the opportunity to taste the 2016 vintage of Cantina Tramin’s extraordinary Epokale – considered by some experts to be one of Italy’s greatest white wines – made from late-harvest Gewürztraminer.

The tasting line-up will also include Terlano’s Primo Grand Cuvée 2018 – a spectacular blend of Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, and Decanter’s White Wine of the Year 2021 in the Classic category.

Delicious reds from indigenous grape varieties Lagrein and Vernatsch (Schiava) will be poured, alongside a local twist on Pinot Nero (Noir) as well as a small-batch Pinot Grigio of pristine, premium quality, an oak-fermented Pinot Bianco, and the highly reputed ‘Feldmarschall Von Fennberg‘ Müller Thurgau.
