Seminar 4: Prosciutto di Parma and the Wines of Emilia Romagna
In every region in Italy, there are specialty food products as well as the wines produced. So of course the ideal way to taste wines is paired with one of these local products. For the most recent wine seminar from the North American Sommelier Association, the wines of Emilia Romagna were paired with Prosciutto di Parma. Yum!
Emilia Romagna is known for Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Ducati and Bugatti; it is home to the world’s oldest university in Bologna and is the cultural and political link between the North and the South. Emilia Romagna is also known for Parmigiano Reggiano, Balsamic Vinegar from Modena, Prosciutto di Parma and Lambrusco.
