Italy North Vs South Tasting
Italy North V South Tasting
Thursday 26th October  2017

The matching of traditional winemaking methods with modern techniques allow top producers in southern Italy showcase their wines on the world stage. Their wines are competitive and gain increased recognition  year after year.
Over 10 years ago the likes of Nero d’Avola, Aglianico and Primitivo were only  known in the region of productions and some international aficionados. The Italian wine industry was represented in the world at that time only by wines from central  and northern Italy such as Barolo, Chianti and Valpolicella. Come and taste and compare with us some of the best examples from the North and the South. We will showcase Amarone V Primitivo, Sangiovese V Nero d’Avola, Nebbiolo V Aglianico....
