Join us for an online wine tasting event on Friday 26th March at 7pm, featuring four wines from Planeta, a producer with five wineries placed in all the corners of Sicily.
Penny Murray (Planeta), David Toscano (Cin Cin) and Toby (Enotria) will take your wine palate on a journey around the regions of Sicily and the vineyards of Planeta.
For five centuries and through seventeen generations, the Planeta family have been involved with the course of agricultural evolution in the complex land of Sicily.
“Sicily is like a baby continent, and there is such an array of different terroirs, climates and altitudes. This means we can make wines that are fresh, light and fruity like Frappato, beautiful aromatics like Terebinto, wines full of volcanic minerality like Etna Bianco, rich wines like Santa Cecilia and also wines from historical areas, like Capo Milazzo where the Mamertino DOC comes from, wines with documented evidence that goes back to the period of Julius Caesar” – Penny from Planeta
The evening will feature four stunning wines, two red and two white.
The session will start at 7pm with an introduction from David, Toby and Penny. They’ll introduce some basics of wine tasting, talk you through four wines, and answer any questions at the end of the session.
An insight into Planeta’s chosen white wines will kick off the tasting session.
At 8pm you will enjoy a break to prepare some food, hopefully your pre ordered CIN CIN At Home meal!
Whilst enjoying your meal you will be guided through the selection of red wines.
There will be a live Q&A at the end of the tasting session.
An informative, relaxed, fun session perfect for any level of wine knowledge.
