Biondivino’s Ceri Smith, one of the original founders of SF Natural Wine Week, is hosting a fantastic tasting of Italian natural wines with a few Spanish and Sherry producers joining the lineup. This event will take place Wednesday August 25, from 5.30 to 9pm.
In Ceri’s own words:
what can i say but -wow- what a line up
we are so happy to be involved with a group of like-minded importers, restaurants & retailers in presenting and bringing these organic/biodynamic wines to the forefront of what is happening out there in the world of wine.
when, nowadays, around the world, there is the clutter of wine built up upon the marketing gurus and trendy expensive “label” wines – these winemakers are showing the world the beauty and elegance of “un-spoofalated” winemaking – sans the marketing masters and bulk consistancy, these are the gems in the raw. in a way, they are the progressive future by returning back to the past — to the basics and ancient methods of wine-making.
they speak their own voice, of their land, of their grape.
i hope you will come with an open mind and fresh palate and taste the diversity and array of these exciting wines from across italy and spain
