  • Overview

    This course is a specialized survey of the wine culture and society in Tuscany. The different wine producing zones of the region will be examined, from bigger makes such as Chianti and Super Tuscans to lesser-commercialized yet upcoming areas like Montecucco towards the south. On a socio-cultural level, the role of wine on the Tuscan table, festivities, customs, and social settings constitute an integral aspect of this course in order to introduce students to the underlying human context behind the production and service of Tuscan wines.
