PETERSHAM CELLAR WINE TASTING - 'Great Wines from Italian Indigenous Grape Varieties'

Saturday, 01st October 2016 12:00pm - 01:30pm

Tickets:

The indigenous grape varieties of Italy are part of a unique heritage. Italy is a hugely diverse country and this is reflected in its grape varieties. Over the past ten years, Italian producers have been in search of native grape varieties, in a way rediscovering lost pieces of their viticultural heritage. Modern technology has enabled the producers to make the most of these indigenous grape varieties. At Petersham Cellar, we believe is vital that we celebrate and preserve these extraordinary grape varieties. We therefore invite you to join us in discovering more about the history and characteristics of wines introduced during this wine tasting. The wines on offer are truly representative the regions in which they are grown. All of the wines have been personally selected by our sommeliers in order to present an extensive variety of rare and authentic wines.

Piedmont is home to an enormous variety of well-known wines. While Turin is the capital of Piedmont, Alba and Asti remain at the heart of the region’s wine industry. Having played a significant role in the early stages of the Risorgimento, Piedmontese wine has not only been central to the history of the region but also in the making of the entire nation. From Asti Spumante to Barolo and Barbaresco, wines originating from the region are massively diverse. This wine lunch hopes to guide you through some of the most renowned and appraised wines from the region. Five wines will be accompanied by a seasonal menu prepared by Petersham Nurseries Head Chef, Damian Clisby. All wines tasted will be available to buy on the day at a special discounted price only available for attendees.

We begin discussing late sowing options for early September, whilst the ground is still warm, as well as sharing our expert knowledge on hardy crops for winter and protecting your plot against frost. Autumn is also a key time to prepare your plot for the next growing season, from replenishing nutrients in the soil – to planning your planting for a spring harvest. This event includes a tour of the Petersham House kitchen garden, where you will be introduced to soil preparation and maintenance. After lunch, the afternoon session will introduce you to the art of sowing successional salad and vegetable crops, drawing on Amanda’s years of experience as a kitchen gardener and allotmenter.
