The Great B’s of Italian Wine

Just the thought of pulling one of the B’s from your cellar for a dinner party will cause your guests to be giddy with anticipation. We’re talking about the Barolo, Barbaresco, and Brunello, which have positioned Italian wine amongst the greatest in the world.

Join us for our next in person tasting with WFF favorite, and Certified Wine Educator – Mark Rashap, and take a deep dive into what makes these wines so special and compare different styles and production techniques that characterize the various regions. From Piedmont to Tuscany, Nebbiolo to Sangiovese, and perhaps a surprise or two along the way, we’ll compare wines to highlight a specific concept and have a lot of fun along the way. And doesn’t hurt that we’ve had a string of incredible vintages!

Light bites are provided.

Space is limited, so reserve your spot as this class will sell out quickly!


You will taste wines that define Italy. Guests will have the rare opportunity to ask Mark Rashap (CWE) Certified Wine Educator questions about Italian wines, their regions, and discuss why the wines chosen are special and unique.

Light bites will be provided.

IMBIBE means to consume or absorb – and that’s exactly what you’ll do in our classes… consume and absorb wine, food, and knowledge.

We host about two IMBIBE classes each month – usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays. These classes are a great way to learn, and engage with other like-minded members of our community.  We have a variety of highly knowledgeable professionals who impart great information, and usually a few good laughs, too!



The safety of our community is our top priority. The Wine & Food Foundation has been adapting plans based on new and evolving information through the recommendations of Travis County, the state of Texas and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Wine & Food Foundation has put important measures in place to ensure the health and safety of our attendees during this event.
