Meet the Producer: Virtual Wine Tasting with Ayunta

$135.00

Sold Out

Presenting Meet the Producer, a virtual wine tasting with producers across the Italian peninsula! Each month, one of Cavinona's winemakers will select three of their favourite bottles and host a virtual tasting where we will learn the story and characteristics behind each of their indigenous Italian wines. In addition to picking up your wines at Spaccio (22 Sackville St.) we will be emailing you your Zoom access link 24 hours before the start of your class. Once you pick up your kit, store all bottles in the fridge. 

This month we have Filippo Mangione from Ayunta! This family owned grape farm and winery has its vineyards sprawled across 2.8 hectares which rise almost 700 meters above the sea level on the northern slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily, close to the little village of Randazzo. Etna’s mineral rich soil is expressed in deeper and more complex flavours in the wines, while the high concentration of lapillus (locally known as ripiddu) - the tiny lava fragments extruded straight from the volcano’s pit during eruption – creates ideal drainage for the vines. Soil is everything on Etna, and Filippo has some of the best.

We look forward to having you join us in exploring the wines of Ayunta!

Which wines will we be tasting?

  • Navigabile: Pale garnet with aromas of violet, red cherries and stone.

  • Piante Sparse: Straw yellow with notes of ripe stone fruit, beeswax and layered minerality.

  • Nerello Mascarese Rosato : Straw yellow with notes of ripe stone fruit, beeswax and layered minerality.
