Italian Wine & Culture: Taste of Sicily

  • March 11, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come experience the depth and breadth of Italian wines at a series of 7 seminars.  Each seminar will take you to a different wine producing region of Italy.  You will discover some of the finest wines of that region including a detailed profile of the most relevant characteristics of each wine, its taste, best food pairings and information about the local soil, climate and unique aspects of wine production.  There will also be a brief introduction to other interesting information about each region.  The result will be an evening combining great Italian wines with the world of art, music, fiction, poetry and movies.

... it's a fun way to spend an evening, and you will learn something too!

The following organizations are collaborating to present these seminars:

  • DC Italian Sommeliers;
  • Casa Italiana;
  • Istituto Italiano di Cultura;
  • Italians in DC;
  • Circolo Veronesi nel Mondo;
  • Passatempo; and
  • Vinitaly.

Events will take place on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 PM during the months of January through May 2013.  During each seminar, attendees will taste 4 wines carefully selected to illustrate the evening’s theme, paired with light hors d’oeuvres.  At the final meeting a farewell dinner will be offered to participants and friends who attended all seminars.

    I totally agree with Sarah. Excellent, but the noise from the back tables was most unpleasant.

    The best-organized of the wine evenings thus far -- and nice food pairings, too. Sure wish the gang in the rear would be less noisy, however! They detract from everyone's enjoyment.

    Another fabulous evening, delicious wines paired with wonderful appetizers. The Sicilian wines had distinct, standout characters, each pleasantly surprising. I especially loved the White and Marsala selections. Squisiti!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
