ITALIAN ISLAND TIME: DISCOVER INDIGENOUS SICILIAN WINES

May 23, 2019 6pm

While Sicily is growing in its reputation in the wine world, it is not as commonly talked about as regions like Tuscany or Piedmont... but it definitely should be! White wines refresh with a beachy salinity, rosés shimmer with elegance and red wines possess an unmistakeable volcanic minerality thanks to the lower slopes of Mount Etna. Learn about Sicily's indigenous varietals and why the island's terroir makes them so special; join as we taste seven beautiful indigenous white, rosé and red wines born on the southern Italian island.

Reminder: Our classes start promptly at their advertised time. If you arrive late we'll do our best to accommodate you, but we cannot guarantee that you will be served all of the wines.
