Whilst any wine drinker is familiar with wines from Tuscany, the other smaller wine producing regions of central Italy are often discarded and unknown beyond their borders. Five handpicked wines will be tasted throughout the lunch from various regions across central Italy, including: Le Marche, Lazio, Abruzzo and Umbria. The selection of wine will be carefully paired with a menu created by Petersham Nurseries Head Chef, Damian Clisby.
This event will showcase five of our favourite sparkling and rose wines here at Petersham Cellar. The selection will feature three sparkling and two still rosé wines from various regions of Italy. We will take you through each individual wine explaining their unique stories alongside the three very different vinification methods used. This is a great opportunity to try some fresh, vibrant sparkling wines that have been specifically chosen to be enjoyed throughout the summer months. A 10% discount will be offered on the wines tasted on the day. NB Tickets non-refundable.
This wine lunch will take you on a unique journey through the volcanic areas of Italy where you will discover a treasure trove of wines produced from these notoriously mineral rich soils. Wines grown on volcanic soils tend to be associated with a distinctive flavour profile and can occasionally, within the white wines, even come across slighlty salty from the depth of minerality. The regions we will be tasting from are gaining momentum in the wine world as wine-making is becoming more inivitave and is refelcted in the quality of the wines, as you will discover. The wines truly highlight their provenance by displaying these unique volcanic characteristics, our chef will be putting together a three course menu that will showcase the wines. NB Tickets non-refundable.
This event is designed to open your eyes to alternative wines from the Tuscan region - it's not all about those big reds we know and love, there are so many other 'under-the-radar' wines that deserve to be put on a pedestal as well. This is a wonderful opportunity to try a few of the stunning whites, rosés and pudding wines the region has to offer. Petersham Cellar will be presenting five different wines and offering a 10% discount on purchases made on the day. NB Tickets non-refundable.
Sardinian wines have gained a reputation like the terrain on which they grow – a little rough. Wine cultivation for personal consumption is embedded in Sardinian culture. Families have been producing their own wine for centuries. Perhaps most renowned for its Vermentino and Cannonau, the second largest island in the Mediterranean boasts a number of indigenous varieties. There are many differences between Sardinian wines and those from mainland Italy due to factors such as the climate, the salty air and the strong winds. This wine lunch will introduce you to some of the most interesting wineries on the island, the wines will be carefully paired with a Sardinian inspired menu created by Petersham Nurseries Head Chef, Damian Clisby.
