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

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

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.

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.

As many of you will be aware, the term 'Super Tuscan' is a term that originated in the late 1960s to describe some of the most innovative and superlative wines from Tuscany. The 'Super Tuscan' movement began with a few forward thinking wine producers from Chianti who broke with tradition and conformity by breaking with stringent regulations of the time. The revolutionary movement has evolved and is now very much embedded in the regional wine culture. In this tasting we will explore the most inventive and impressive red wines, that truly match their description.
