Featured Wines: 9/4 Tasting
This week, our virtual tasting will explore Sicily, the island off the "boot" of Italy, world famous for hand painted ceramics and legendary beaches. As the largest island in the Mediterranean, the mineral rich soil and mild climate are ideal for wine making. We'll be trying three wines from the same family owned winery. The BAGLIO DELLE FATE estate is owned by siblings Valentina and Cesare. Their wines are produced with the greatest care for both the environment and for the consumer and capture the essence of Sicilian wine!
Virtual Tasting: Friday September 4th at 4:00pm (Mountain Time)

A modern white wine from ancient grapes, the Grillo, is a historic Sicilian varietal. This vineyard elegantly expresses the character of the grape. It is a bright yellow color with notes of citrus and Mediterranean maquis with a rich, intense, and salty taste.
Suggested Pairing: ~Veal Carpaccio
This wine is a non-blended red. Ruby in color with violet hues, it is a young, genuine, and sincere wine that expresses the characteristics of the Nero d’Avola DOC with simplicity.
Suggested Pairing: ~Pan Roasted Pork
Cerasuolo is the only Sicilian wine which can boast DOCG certification. It is a wine that strongly expresses its territory of origin, through a perfect synergy between the strength, structure, and the fruitfulness with the elegance, delicacy, and floral qualities.
Suggested Pairing: ~Grilled Tuna
