Volcanic Wine Tasting, Mediterra

Wednesday July 17, 2024
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Wine regions are closely tied to the dirt in which they grow because the composition of the soil makes a difference in how the plant grows. One soil type that gets a lot of attention is volcanic. You’ll hear of wines that are grown in this environment often referred to as, simply, volcanic wines. These are wines from vineyards grown near active, dormant, or extinct volcanoes—here, rich ash and lava from eruptions are present in the soil. Volcanic soils are quite porous, and you can imagine that those pores allow for good drainage. This means that the soil near the surface isn’t holding onto rainwater or humidity to hydrate the vines, so they develop deep roots in their search for moisture and nutrients. Join us for a volcanic wines tasting and discover wines from Sicily, Campania, California and Chile.

Tapas and snacks will be served.
