WINE TASTING: MAREMMA Region/Tuscany (Part 1 of 2)

Come and join me and Tim Ponzi from ALLORA Wine Group for a journey into Italian wines!
This is the first of 2 wine tasting events.
WINE TASTING 1: April 27th at 6:30pm (4 Wines from Maremma)
WINE TASTING 2: May 4th at 6:30pm (4 Wines from Abruzzo & Marche)

Wine Tasting 1:
The Maremma is an extensive area of Italy bordering the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Seas. It comprises part of south-western Tuscany - the Maremma Livornese and Maremma Grossetana (the later in the province of Grosseto), and part of northern Lazio - together with the Maremma Laziale (in the province of Viterbo and Rome on the border of the region).


The poet Dante Alighieri in his Divina Commedia places the Maremma between Cecina and Corneto, the former name of Tarquinia.
"Non han sì aspri sterpi nè sì folti
quelle fiere selvagge che 'n odio hanno
tra Cecina e Corneto i luoghi colti."
It was traditionally populated by the Butteri, cattle-breeders who until recently used horses with a distinctive style of saddle. Once unhealthy because of its many marshes, the Maremma was drained under the fascist regime and repopulated with people from other Italian regions, notably the Veneto.

 

Wines that we will be tasting:
Lambrusco di Sorbara (No other Lambrusco tastes like this! - I've personally tasted it! )
San Felo Vermentino
San Felo Frosal Rose
San Felo Morellino di Scansano

There will be appetizers for us to enjoy.

Due to the capacity of the venue, we will limit this event to 15 people. MUST PRE-REGISTER/PRE-PAY to attend.
$35/per person/per event.
