In this 45-minute Sip-Size session, Anna Spooner of the Tastings Team will explore the region’s most famous export, Chianti, as well as unpick the difference between Montepulciano and Montalcino. We’ll discuss the region’s indigenous grapes, the styles of wine produced and even the ‘super-Tuscan’ wines that took the world by storm.

This is an ideal event for anyone looking to learn a little more about Italian wines with a glass or two in hand – if they wish!

Wines that Anna will be using to tell the story of Tuscany can be found below. We encourage you to buy one, two or even all three of the wines to enjoy as you listen, however it's not mandatory to join in!

Our sip-size events are the ideal way to explore the world of wine from the comfort of your home. The 45-minute sessions are a friendly mix of wine education and evening entertainment presented by The Wine Society’s very own Tastings Team.

Each week a different topic is tackled from grape varieties to regions; wine styles and production methods but always ensuring that the session is suitable for all levels – only a love of wine or a thirst for a little more knowledge required. We’ll provide recommendations for three wines to taste alongside each event, but of course you’re welcome to join with any wine you choose – or even a cup of tea!
