Thursday Feb 20th
Justin Cox will be here to pour wine and educate us on the Poggio Animo wines from Italy.
Poggio Anima is a joint venture between Montalcino superstar Riccardo Campinoti of Le Ragnaie and his importer Vine Street Imports. The idea is pretty simple: to source the best vineyards from existing relationships and produce a real wine that conveys a place and a grape. These wines are not bulk wines, nor leftover juice from a winery, but long term contracts that we have signed with reputable growers.
Poggio Anima translates to ‘Hill of Soul.’ Going back to the concept of Poggio Anima we wanted to capture the ‘soul’ of each vineyard and grape. No manipulation, no water, sugar, etc. Just the pure expression of the fruit and site. I would argue that many wines have a ‘soul,’ but very few weeknight wines share this. Poggio Anima has come along to change this.
Light snacks will be provided along with the wine. All bottles that are on the tasting purchased this night will be an additional 10% off and everyone will go home with a FREE Riedel Burgundy glass.
This event is only $15 for Wine Club Members and $20 for non-Wine Club members.
Reserve your spot, there will be limited space for this private tasting event!
