Italian wines are revered throughout the world for their beautiful qualities as well as their
distinctive taste. So what makes them so unique? The secret begins in the depths of the earth,
brought to the surface by the extinct and active volcanos found throughout Italy’s landscape.
And it’s not just the wine. Tomatoes would not have become the global culinary favorite
without volcanic soil.
Ciao Asheville and John Kerr of Metro Wines team up to discuss what makes Italian volcano
wines so unique. This event will take place on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, from 5-6pm at
Metro Wines, 169 Charlotte Street, Asheville.
John will discuss how volcanos produce the world’s best wines and how volcanos create the
excellent conditions needed for the varied and complex flavors found in many Italian wines.
You’ll also find out how volcanos helped produce Italy’s vast number of grape varietals, over
1,500 throughout the peninsula. And you’ll learn how to recognize these flavors as you taste
volcano wines throughout the presentation.
We’ll present 4 volcano wines for tasting: a white and red from Mt. Etna in Sicily and a white
and red from Mt. Vesuvius near Naples.
Price for the evening is $15 + tax (refundable up until 48 hours prior to the event), which
includes the tasting and talk by John. Light snacks will be served. For more
information call Metro Wines at (828) 575-9525.
Note for attendees: Please park at the back of the parking lot at Metro Wines.
