International Wine Academy-Educate Yourself About Italian Wines on Your Vacation
The International Wine Academy of Roma, located just off the Piazza di Spagna at Vicolo del Bottino 8, offers wine tasting events at least once a week. The academy is part of Il Palazzetto, a former home of Italian nobles that the owner of the Hotel Hassler turned into a wine club. Wine tasting events start at 20 Euros and feature wines from around Italy. There are often themes to the tastings, such as "The Wines of the Volcanoes: Etna vs. Vesuvius and others" (Saturday, October 11th). There is also a restaurant at the Palazzetto, so you can turn your wine tasting event into an entire evening. Buon Appetito!
