Slow Wine Night: Forgotten Ancestors from Enotria
Join longtime Slow Food member Alfonso Cevola as he takes your tastebuds on a Slow Wine tour into the heirloom vines of Italy . While you learn about these wines, you'll also enjoy an antipasto buffet that includes salumi cured by David Uygur, Slow Food member and Executive Chef of Lola and The Tasting Room at Lola.
Italy has a wealth of ancient vines that have been brought back from extinction since the end of WWII. These are all wines that were facing extinction or were unknown until recently. While many of these wines were familiar to Italians from fables and folklore, it wasn't until the mapping of the genetic nature of these grapes that the Italian winemakers were able to identify and propagate the purer strains of these almost forgotten ancestors.
Several bottles of wine will be raffled off at this event. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event for $5 apiece, so be sure to bring your pocket change and checkbook.
