Join Swirl Wine Bar and Market at the American Italian Cultural Center for a tasting of wines from Sicily. From the volcanic soils of Mount Etna to the dry, arid terroir of Vittoria and the chalky slopes of Menfi, Sicily offers an amazing array of indigenous varietals that thrive in the diverse microclimates across the island. Grapes such as Nerello Mascalese, Grillo, Caricante, Frappatto, Cataratto and Nero D’Avola are the source of Sicily’s unique and intriguing wines giving them a distinct character not replicated anywhere in the world.
Tonight we’ll taste 6 wines from various producers highlighting different regions, styles and grape varietals of the island. And since an Italian wine experience is not complete without food, we will offer a selection of Italian meats and cheeses to pair with the wines. The tasting is $35 and members receive a 10% discount.
