POSTPONED – Italian Wine Tasting – Tuesday the 7th of April
April 7, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$45
One of our favourite speakers, we’re really happy to welcome back Enrico for a tasting dedicated to Tuscany and Central Italy. Enrico, originally from Venice has a wine importing business, Grape Circus, a brilliant chef and also is a partner in Piglet wine bar in Temple Bar.
A true wine and food lover Enrico’s knowledge of Italian wine is second to none and on this evening he will offer an insight into the wines and the people behind them.
Italy is a complex wine country with more than 900 indigenous grape varieties; Italy can be baffling even to the seasoned Italian wine drinker.
In this tasting, Enrico will explore Tuscany and central Italy, we’ll look at (and taste) the wines found in this spectacularly beautiful region.
This region is the epitome of perfect wine country, boasting some of Italy’s most famous appellations: Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Vernaccia di san Gimignano, Carmignano. Enrico will select a range of wines that combines the classics with some slightly more left-field choices.
As these wines go hand in hand with food, we’ll be serving some Italian-themed small plates to complement the wines.
