The white wines of Etna Seminar – 9.02.2014 Viagrande

The seminar dedicated to Etna and taking place on its slopes has just come to an end. On this beautiful day while Etna was showing the signs of unrest a large group of wine lovers gathered to taste some ten different wines from Etna in the presence of some of the producers. The seminar was conducted by Piero di Giovanni who with humor and simplicity introduced the wine enthusiasts into the wines of a very specific and special territory, i.e that on the slopes of Europe’s greatest volcano. Different labels such as Tasca D’Almerita, Tenuta di Fessina, Quantico, Filippo Grasso, Aitalà, Classe 39, Cottanera, Cantine Russo, Terre Grasso Salina. All white and all different.
