Please join us as we take a culinary and vinicultural tour of the various regions of this exciting & diverse country.
We will explore several of Italy’s well know wine regions, and enjoy some of the traditional varietals that you have come to love, as well as some exciting wines that you may not be familiar with.
Our wine educator for the evening will be Elle Andrews - and Elle knows her wine! Just ask the patrons of Corn Hill's Flight Wine Bar what the best wine on the menu is, and most of them will tell you it is whatever Elle suggests for them. Her love of wine began while studying abroad in Europe, and today she delights in sharing her passion and knowledge of viticulture and enology with customers, friends and family. Elle is continuing her studies with The Court of Master Sommeliers with an eye to add another female member to the elite list of Masters. In addition to holding a degree in education she is also a member of the Society of Wine Educators and the Guild of Sommeliers. Her goal is to "To make learning and exploring wine understandable, approachable and fun!”
