La Cantina Presents: A Sangiovese Masterclass

Sangiovese challenges, delights and intrigues winemakers and viticulturist experts alike. Now, there is Sangiovese, and then there's Sangiovese! The Price and quality of this wine can rival some of the worlds greatest wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and of course, Australia. Through this comparative tasting, we aim to discover what makes this grape variety tick, tackle the some-what confusing wine laws surrounding Chianti & IGT's and how the variety responds to different regions throughout Tuscany and Australia 

Join us at La Cantina as we present:

Time: 6pm - 8pm
Location: La Cantina
