Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a great night of wines and a very special guest.
There is plenty of modern evidence to support the idea that volcanic soils are truly special when it comes to producing top level wines. But thousands of years ago, the Greeks and the Romans apparently figured it out first. In this new and exciting class, we’ll explore the role of volcanic soils in Italian wine while tasting some of the greatest examples available.
Wines to be poured: Suavia Monte Carbonare Soave Classico, Bisceglia Gudarra Aglianico del Vulture, Galardi Terra di Lavoro Roccamonfina IGT, Mastroberardino Lacryma Christi Del Vesuvio Bianco and Rosso, and Tenuta di Fessina Erse Etna Bianco and Rosso.
Our special guests will be Massimo Serradimigni and Nikki Erpelding of Winebow, both Italian wine specialists and fellow wine educators.
We’ll begin with an overview and history of Italian wine, exploring the context of the formation of the country with the styles of wine the different regions produce (with emphasis on central and southern Italy). Then it’s onto the big show with some amazing wines.
Massimo and Nikki will then step up us through seven fantastic selections while explaining the details for the wineries and regions.
I hope you can join us for this new, incredible, and explosive class!
