Register now: Sicilian Wines Master Class in Houston 10/17 and Dallas 10/20.
The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce South Central is pleased to present a Sicilian Wines Master Class.
The Houston event will be led by Jaime De Leon, advanced sommelier in the Court of Master Sommeliers and regional buyer and wine program manager for Kroger. The event will be held on Monday, October 17, 5:00 p.m. at Roma restaurant in Houston.
The Dallas event will be presented on Thursday, October 20, 5:00 p.m., by Italian wine expert Aldo Bove, educator and manager for Above Wines. The event will take place at Eataly.
Both events will feature wines by leading Sicilian wineries Cambria and Maduado.
Among the labels to be tasted will be wines made from Sicily’s Nocera grape. This variety, once considered a second-tier grape, is now getting a lot of attention from grape growers and winemakers who prize its wonderful acidity, an element that helps it retain its freshness during the long hot summers of recent years.
The events are open to qualified wine industry professionals and media.
