Destination Naples and Pompeii:

The Food and Wine of Pompeii and Southern Italy

What did the people of Pompeii eat and drink and what can the remains of food and wine found in excavations in the city and around the Bay of Naples reveal about ancient Roman culture and when Vesuvius actually erupted? Danielle Oteri will offer a brief overview of the food and wine of Pompeii. Afterward, Christian Galliani, sommelier and Italian wine expert, will discuss the wines of the Campania region, where Naples and Pompeii are located, which are some of the overlooked yet standout wines produced in Italy. Optional purchase in advance four-pack of wine to participate in the tasting. Click here to purchase.
