Wine Tasting La Via del Vino

Sunshine in a Bottle
Wines of Puglia and Sicily

With its
sunshine and pretty white trulli villages, beautiful coastline and baroque towns, southern Puglia is becoming a popular tourist destination – but it is also the second largest producer of red wine after Sicily. What makes Puglia so interesting for wine lovers is its own varieties of grapes.  Many of Puglia’s native grapes are of Greek descent which arrived centuries ago through the important trading ports of Bari and Brindisi. 

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and its dry, warm climate features regular sunshine and moderate rainfall that suits wine production. Today, it boasts one of Europe’s most dynamic wine industries for critics, sommeliers, and importers, the wines they dream about at night are indigenous. Sicilia DOC wines feature the medley of flavors that  has been known for since ancient times and which represent some of the best wines of Italy. Sicily’s reputation as a food and wine paradise has remained intact for more than 3,000 years.

Join ICC board member and Italian wine aficionado, Dominic Sposeto, for a tasting of Primitivo, Aglianico and Primonero (Puglia), Etna Rosso, Frappato and Nero d'Avola (Sicily). We will  dream travel through Puglia and Sicily with a special guest from the area appreciating their wines and enjoying a light brunch at Italian Eatery.

The event will be held Sunday, January 12 12:00 – 2:00 PM at Italian Eatery in Minneapolis, 4724 Cedar Ave.
