NYC: Wine Night In-Person Networking – “Off the Beaten Path” Wines of Italy

Thursday, September 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for a tour of spectacular, but lesser-known wines of Italy – the land of 1,000 varieties of wines.

All of this evening’s wines are very special but are not in the “mainstream” of wine consumption. Besides being exceptional wines, the prices of lesser-known wines tend to be lower than more popular varietals of the same quality. To maximize safety and the freedom to mingle, this event is only open to fully vaccinated individuals. Please refer to the Participation Agreement below.

First, you will be greeted with some lovely Italian sparkling wine to refresh and cleanse the palate. We will then offer a tasting of six distinctive wines, from parts of Italy that are not as talked about but are making world-class wines. 

  • We will begin by focusing on wines from the islands of Sicily and Sardegna.
  • Moving up the boot to Campania and then on to the North where we will discuss Trentino and the Valle D’Aosta.
  • With a range of styles as long as the country itself, we hope to show a new and exciting side of the land of 1,000 varieties of wine.

Crafted for everyone from the adventurous wine newcomer to the dedicated oenophile, the evening is paced to provide ample time for relaxed networking. Guests can enjoy multiple generous tastings of the evening’s wine. Saluti!

What’s Up
