Le Vie del Vino

The Volcanic Wines of Sicily



Thursday, July 22, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Have you ever wondered what a volcano actually tastes like? Or perhaps you would like to explore the world of Italian sparkling wine beyond Prosecco? Or experience a unique white wine that pairs perfectly with shellfish? 

If so, then please join us for an evening of tasting wines made from indigenous grapes from one of the most ancient wine regions in the world - Sicily

Blessed with perfect weather conditions for grape growing, wine has been an integral part of Sicily for almost 6,000 years. From the clean, fresh and crisp Sicilian whites that pair perfectly with seafood and shellfish, to the smokey and highly aromatic reds of Nerello Mascalese, Cappuccio and Frappato. One can almost taste the volcanic ash from the soils of Mt. Etna where they are grown!  

In addition to 5 wines rarely found outside of Sicily, you will enjoy appetizers and live music performed by Vittorio and The Bridges with the beautiful Minneapolis summer skyline in the background.

The wine tasting will be led by David Johnson, certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers and all-around Italian wine enthusiast.

The event will be held Thursday, July 22 7:00 – 9:00 PM at Loring Alley - 1625 Hennepin Ave - Suite 250 - Minneapolis, MN 55403 (Google Maps: Foresight Associates). 

The event will be held outside on the rooftop weather permitting. In case of inclement weather it will be held inside at the same location.

We invite all participants to read the Minnesota Department of Health guidelines prior to the event.

Space is limited! Register now.
