We are bringing the Sicily to La Cantina
with Tenuta de Fessina wines
Sat 30/9 & Sun 1/10 | 1pm onwards | $40 per person
Out of a landscape carved by lava that flowed in centuries past comes the ancient twisted vines of Sicily. Tenuta di Fessina exists on the slopes of Mt. Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. The vines are rooted in shallow, black soils composed of sand, pumice stones and clay and rich in minerals. The result is wines with outstanding richness and complexity of aromas as well as an interesting and elegant structure. The intense minerality is drawn from the soil and reflected in both the nose and the palate.
In this masterclass we will be tasting though the new release vintages from this range alongside some traditional Sicilian dishes.
