Sicily & Calabria
The two regions are separated at its narrowest point, between Torre Faro and Villa San Giovanni, by 3.1 km (1.9 mi) of sea. Both regions have very similar climatic conditions, though the wines they produce are very different. Sicily’s most famous red grape variety is Nero d’Avola, usually used to produce big and bold red wines. In Calabria, red grape, Gaglioppo produces wine more similar to the Northern Nebbiolo grape. These two regions have improved the quality of their wines over the last 20 years and enjoy worldwide recognition. Come and join us to discover the exciting wines of these two regions.

Ali Affleck and the Red Hot Rhythm Makers
This all female band, from Central Scotland, has been assembled as a response to Ali Affleck’s pioneering and critically acclaimed ‘Preaching Divas’ project; which focuses on the ground-breaking (and mostly forgotten) women of jazz and blues. Since The Red Hot Rhythm Makers went ‘public’ in summer 2018 they have received rave reviews from very happy audiences. The band provide fun, accessible New Orleans and Mississippi jazz and blues. Their repertoire consists of old American prohibition era folk, hot roots jazz, pre-electric blues, hokum and rather large nods to their Scottish heritage. They also perform some more modern numbers (circa 1940s) and have many original songs being developed as we speak.
