"The Super Tuscans" VS "The Brunellos di Montalcino" - Tasting some of the greatest Italian Wines ever Made "Blind".

Hosted by wine expert Ian Blackburn, select which you prefer and find out why you prefer it. We tally up the winners and the losers are exposed when we reveal and surprise everyone which-wine-is-which. The vote is fun! No wine knowledge needed to attend and enjoy, but this lineup is powerful, educational, and top Italian Collectors will be intreged. Everyone will laugh, wine, and be merry all while eating your weight in Parmesan and Pecorino Cheese! Reveal your inner Italian Stallion.

This class is accompanied by a big bowl of "Pasta Alla Fungi" severed with Ian's 20 Italian herbs and spices sauce. Bravo!

Encourage a tip for the wine pourers, as tip is not included!

wineLA is about enhancing the wine culture of Los Angeles. To do so, wine must be in rhythm with fashion, music, food and other beverages. It must take advantage of the geography, the architecture and the centers of interest. Los Angeles is a giant playground with an amazing array of venues, spaces, wine bars, restaurants, beaches, roof tops, gardens, and magical views. We want to be a part of the LA lifestyle, the wine lifestyle, and celebrate the people, the place and the passion.

wineLA will promote significant events, occasional classes, and tastings of merit. This is phase two of what we started 20 years ago at LearnAboutWine.com - America’s first wine education website and first in wine event creation. LearnAboutWine will now evolve onto a digital platform; the transformation will take some time; so we will slowly rebrand our event efforts onto wineLA, reduce the number of activities we focus on, and elevate our efforts to focus on the next big thing… Doing what is best for the wine industry and the communities we serve. Edicts: innovate, evolve and excite.

We thank you for joining our newsletter, we will be sending fewer emails and packing them with amazing content. We want to be your wine content provider and would love to hear about your favorite places, your music, your locations - we want to be under the influence of what ignites your passion for Los Angeles.
