We can all agree that Italy’s two most enticing exports are wine and cheese, so we're putting them together for this most decadent tasting class. We'll dive into the classics and explore some of the more esoteric selections in hopes of finding the perfect pairing. A representative from Murray’s Cheese will give you in-depth information on the cheeses, and we'll pair them with wines that bring out all of their uniquely Italian character. Led by Sarah Marley.
