As this class takes you on a wine adventure through both regions, you'll taste and discuss the delicious wines from both regions, try distinct food pairings, and learn traditions and general consumption rules.

Expect to walk around a half mile (0.8 km) total at a leisurely pace between tasting locations. At each destination, the friendly staff greets you and shows you to your private table for the tasting. It is recommended that you wear comfortable, dressy-casual clothing and shoes. Your first stop is Galli where you will savor delicious Italian or Spanish wines and Italian comfort food pairings. Learn the basics of tasting wine and pairing it with complementary foods as you snack on grilled calamari or mozzarella with tomatoes, accompanied by two glasses of wine. Your second stop will be at a second sensational restaurant in the heart of SoHo, Spring Street Natural.
