Description

Join us for a tour of spectacular, but lesser known wines of Italy. All of these wines are very special, but are not in the "mainstream" of wine consumption. They are for those who are in the know, or for those who have a trustworthy wine shop who are, in the know. Besides being exceptional wines, the prices of lesser known wines tend to be lower than more popular varietals of the same quality.

First, you will be greeted with some lovely Italian sparkling wine to refresh and cleanse the palate.

We will then offer a tasting of six distinctive wines, from parts of Italy that are not as talked about, but are making world class wines. We will begin by focusing on wines from the islands of Sicily and Sardegna. Moving up the boot to Campania and then on to the North where we will discuss Trentino and the Valle D'Aosta. With a range of styles as long as the country itself, we hope to show a new and exciting side of the land of 1,000 varieties of wine.

  • La Monacesca Mirum Verdicchio di Matelica 2008
  • Foradori Fuoripista Pinot Grigio Magnum 2016
  • Badebec La Cantina di Cuneaz Nadir Rosso Valle D'Aoste 2015
  • Mora & Memo Cannonau Di Sardegna 2017
  • Foradori Teroldego Vigneti Dolomiti Biodynamic 2016
  • Gaustaferro Raffaele Primum Taurasi 2008

Crafted for everyone from the adventurous wine newcomer to the dedicated oenophile, the evening is paced to provide ample time for relaxed networking with other OP Members and guests. Cheers!
