W ine World conducted a Islands of Italy Seminar Tasting presented by Adam Verona, Italian Specialist with RNDC of South Carolina. Andrew Benjamin said they tasted some extraordinary wines from Sicily and Sardinia. = The wine producers of Sicily and Sardinia have made significant strides in recent years with attention to preserving and improving wines from grapes traditional to these areas and also developing “international” grape types. We were fortunate to have Adam to present these wines and to share his extensive knowledge of these fascinating wine regions.
Bread, cheese and nibbles were served. Attendees were offered special prices on these wines.
