Wine Tasting: Sicily and Sardinia

August 30, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Enjoy island life with the Wining Archaeologist. 

Drink wine and discover the islands and their history!

Sardinia and Sicily are those two big islands booted away from the Italian mainland.

While they share some elements of their history with the mainland – notably heavy Greek and Roman influence – the islands also have their own distinctiveness. They were more influenced by Nuragic groups and Phoenicians and, later, Arabs also left a mark on these island worlds.

With island insularity and a history that sometimes diverges from the mainland, things are a little different on Sardinia and Sicily… including their wine and spirits.

We’ll sample some of that ”difference” with:

  • Etna Bianco
  • Vermentino di Sardegna
  • Cerasuolo di Vittoria
  • Rosso di Romangia
  • Cannonau di Sardegna

Your $30 ticket entitles you to our 5-wine tasting plus light snacks, as well as 15% off your evening’s bar tab.
