Tomorrow Friday 11.19th from 7 to 9 PM

Beer Tasting!

 Our next tasting will take us through a tour of wineries in Italy and Spain that proudly manage to incorporate the flavors and preferences of our time with the knowledge and traditions that generations of winemakers have left behind. So from Veneto to Tuscany, a stop in Spain and back to the hills outside of Turin.

Paladin-Bosco del Merlo Wineries are located between Veneto and Friuli, where the two regional cultures have melted together. The vineyards were planted here, along the ancient Roman Postumia road, on the calcareous clays formed during the last glaciations by the Tagliamento river, resorting to the most modern viticulture techniques.

Vèscine estate is located in Castelvecchi, near to Radda in Chianti, on the most charming hills of Chianti Classico  and lies right at the foot of the historical castle, an authentic jewel for history lovers. The cellar dates back to the 11th century. Vèscine estate grows Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes for the production of great Chianti Classico and Chianti Classico Riserva wines.

Moscato d’Asti Docg has been produced in the Monferrato area of Piedmont since the XIII century.

Very close to the city of Burgos in the heart of Ribera del Suero DO Vina Solorca Winery is one of the most advance and modern in the wine making process sucessfully marrying ancestral tradition and 21st century reality.
