Wine Tasting - April 2, 2011

Wine Tasting
Dégustation de Vins

Please note: Once again our popular wine tasting series is sold out however names will be taken on a wait list basis.

The wines of Puglia were relatively unknown until recently. During this session we will discover how old wine varieties combined with new technologies can produce excellence.

Daniele Maestri introduced us to rare reds as he compared Tuscan wines to French vintages at our last wine tasting.
Daniele Maestri, well-known Italian sommelier and a favorite among CCR members for his knowledgeable and lively presentations will lead this lecture and wine tasting. For those interested in ‘wining and dining’, Daniele is also one of the editors of “Due Mila Vini” a guide to Italian wines produced by Italian Sommelier Association.

This is the third in a series of wine tasting/lectures planned for the 2010-2011 season. Each session will be given in French and Italian and focus on a specific theme relative to Italian wines. Our last wine tasting was such a success that we decided to hold another one on a Saturday. Our hosts Ross and Adair offer their hospitality and welcome us to their home. The tasting will end with a light meal and the opportunity to chat with friends.
