About the Event

The Italian influence on California winemaking runs deep and spreads wide; from land to winery, terroir to taste, production to marketing. The sonorous Italian family and grape names have eased themselves into the Californian lexicon as easily and ubiquitously as their cuisine. Pioneers of the movement include Rafanelli, Foppiano, Mondavi, Gallo, Martinelli, Pedroncelli, Rochioli, Sebastiani and Seghesio, to name just a few. The founders of these wineries, largely from Italy's Tuscany region, made their way to California in the mid to late 1800s, many of them attracted by the Gold Rush. They brought with them a wealth of experience and paved the way for Golden State wine as we know it today.

We will show five pairs of wines, each comparing and contrasting between these two great viticultural areas including Sauvignon Blanc, Fiano, Pinot Noir, and Sangiovese, matching them to a three-course dinner showcasing the excellent local produce at The Peat Spade. 

The evening includes:

-  Aperitif.

-  Ten wines served in pairs selected by grape variety.

-  Three-course dinner

It's a good start to the tasting season and I hope you can join us.
