Over the past five years, thousands of travelers to Rome have had the supreme privilege of learning about Italian wines from Hande Leimer of Vino Roma. Understandably, repeat visitors return to her tastings again and again, attracted by her passion and knowledge. Now Rome’s residents have the unique opportunity to partake in an extended wine seminar with Hande at her tasting studio in Monti.

From January 22 until March 26, Hande and her team will host a weekly wine school. Classes will be held Tuesday evenings and each one will focus on one to three Italian regions. Three to four wines will be served at each session and these will be paired with light snacks, like panini or bruschette prepared with very high quality ingredients, many of which will come from the region being studied.
