Volcanic Wines of Italy
Date: Saturday November 18th
Time: 2-5 pm
Style: Winery format stop in at your leisure

There are many areas throughout Italy boasting appellations of volcanic origin.  These wines are distinctive and speak to their origin. The discerning characteristic of volcanic terroir and the wines it produces lies on the palate.  The wines are focused with a linear profile that transcends grape variety and region.  These wines show mineral notes that translate to smoky, ashy, dusty, chalky textures that no other soil is capable of producing.  The wines featured in this flight are some of the top volcanic wines in Italy.
