If you are not familiar with the wines of Sicily, you should be, and here’s your chance. We are featuring three exceptional wines from a pair of equally exceptional wine makers.
First up, the Voria Pet Nat from Marco Sferlazzo, a pharmacist from Palermo whose thoughts kept coming back to the smell and feel of his grandfather’s wine press. In 2002 he found and bought 35 acres of vineyard, and never looked back.
Next, Arianna Occhipinti, a burgeoning cult figure in the biodynamic movement. Arianna tends to 35 acres of olive groves and 13 acres of vineyards in the land around Vittoria, southeastern Sicily. From the beginning, she embraced the idea that in winemaking you must, “Accept the diversity of soils, the slope of the ground, the altitude, and the originality of a vineyard. To accept means to respect.” We’ll be featuring her 2016 Il Frappato, and her 2015 Tami Nero d’Avola.
Drop by the Wine Bar Tuesday, November 6, between 5 & 7 pm—just $10 for the flight of three.
