CCR Wine-tasting: A Visit to Marche - January 16, 2015

We are starting 2015 with a bit of a difference - the evening will be dedicated to tasting the wines of a single producer. Our sommelier has chosen this producer from Marche (a.k.a."the Marches" in English) thanks to his excellent wines, made using both traditional and international grape varieties. Together we will discover ‘how’ and ‘why’. And, as always, we will share a light dinner and enjoy ‘les fonds de bouteilles’ at the end of the tasting.

Where: Residence of CCR members (Prati area -- details will be sent to registered participants)
When: Friday, January 16, 2015 (PLEASE NOTE - exceptionally, this tasting is being held on a Friday.)
Time: 7:00 p.m.(Please be punctual, as a courtesy to the hosts, the sommelier and other participants.)
Cost:  €25 for members (€35 for non-members) 
RSVP to Linda and Paul at canadarome@gmail.com. Please note that you are responsible for your reservation.

Each session is given in French and Italian and focuses on a specific theme relative to Italian wines.

Daniele Maestri, well-known Italian sommelier and a favorite among CCR members for his knowledgeable and lively presentations, will again lead this lecture and wine-tasting. For those interested in ‘wining and dining’, Daniele is one of the editors of “Due Mila Vini” -- a guide to Italian wines produced by the Italian Sommelier Association.
