California, Etna, Vesuvius, Lanzarote, Santorini, Cape Verde, Hawai, New Zealand...Places where lava and ashes destroyed towns, even whole civilizations, but give us today big wines of exceptional character and quality.
Wines born in ashes, at extremely inhospitable environments, give real dimension in what we call terroir (= the land from which the grapes are grown imparts a unique quality to the wines, that is specific to that growing site). These wines often share a few common traits: fresh acidity, minerality, intense aromas and great aging potential.
In this meetup, we will taste 6 exceptional wines (white and red) produced in volcanic soils. Expect to have 3-4 full glasses of wine with accompanying finger food. As always good wines, good bites and good people! This time, we will blow up your taste buds ;-) Hope to see you there!
