Join Wasatch Academy of Wine in welcoming Stephanie Cuadra of Terrestoria Imports as we focus on the wines of Daniele Lenuzza. Vigna Lenuzza is a rare find in many regards. For starters, they make so few bottles of their individual varietal wines that one must simply hedge their bets by snatching as many labels as possible across the entire artisanal range. To call this module a unique opportunity is indeed an understatement. Those who already love the wines of Friuli will not have to think twice, while anyone who has yet to experience wines from Italy’s northeastern frontier (bordering with Slovenia) should consider this module the next essential milestone in wine connoisseurship.
Class will be held at Carmine's Restaurant 2477 East Fort Union Blvd, Cottonwood Heights from 6-9pm. Class participants are expected to purchase a dinner of their choosing from the Carmine's menu and tip their server accordingly.
Join Wasatch Academy of Wine as we welcome Stephanie Cuadra of Terrestoria Imports in presenting wines of Southern Italy. Southern Italy is a heterogenous grouping of incredibly diverse lands, histories and ethnographic realties, which is why referring to what Italians call the Meridione (‘the south’) in monolithic terms can be so misleading. To help put things into perspective, this flight of five red wines takes a deep dive into four distinct viticultural zones: from Basilicata and Puglia on the mainland to the islands of Sardinia and Sicily. A true enological mosaic.
Class will be held at Antica Sicilia 2020 East 3300 South, SLC, from 6-9pm. Class participants will be expected to purchase their dinner from a set menu with three entree choices and tip their server accordingly.
