About the Event
You won't want to miss our last Zoom dinner until the fall as we revisit one of our favorite islands, Sardinia, and we welcome back Alfonso Gagliano, Brand Ambassador for Sella & Mosca Winery as our Guest Speaker. Alfonso divides his time between Sardinia, Sicily and the US. He visited with us in St. Michaels in person last summer for us to taste a few new wines from Sella & Mosca, which we loved. We then decided to have another wine dinner together with you to share these wines, along with the new vintage of the famous Blue Zone Cannonau Reserve di Sardegna, one of our most popular wines in the shop and the famous "Live to be 100" healthy grape.
Sardinia is the 2nd largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and the 3rd largest region in Italy. Sardinians have an incredible quality life expectancy (and was the first Blue Zone named in the world), attributed to many factors, one of which is what they eat and the wine they drink. Alfonso is a wealth of knowledge about the Sardinian Blue Zone lifestyle, their food, culture and of course the wines, so join us for another fun, informative evening! We are also adding a bonus hour prior to the dinner during which Alfonso will demonstrate the preparation of the 2nd Insalata course and answer any questions as you prepare/plate the wonderful meal we have planned to pair with the wines.
Sella & Mosca’s 1,600-acre estate, I Piani, constitutes the second largest contiguous vineyard in Italy, covering more than 1,200 acres of vines. It is one of the largest wine estates in Europe. https://www.taubfamilyselections.com/producers/sella-mosca
