Meet the Producer is a virtual wine tasting event where we connect "live" with one of Cavinona's fine wine producers across the Italian peninsula! During the event, our guest wine producer guides us through a personalized wine tasting and presentation of the territory. Join along in the wine tasting by purchasing the featured wines. In addition, the Zoom access link will be emailed 24 hours before the start of your class. 

This month we travel to the island of Sicilia.  We are excited to introduce one of the island's leading wine producers, Planeta.  The Planeta family has been farming on the island for 17 generations. The winery was founded in 1995 by cousins Alessio, Francesca, and Santi Planeta, under the guidance of their uncle, the great wine pioneer, Diego Planeta. Today Planeta has vineyards in six different estates across the Island, maintaining its high-quality standards and profound roots in traditional Sicilian winemaking and cultivation of indigenous grape varieties.  Planeta has played a key role in the Island's winemaking renaissance and modernization of viticulture. Join our special guest Patricia Tòth, winemaker at Planeta, live from Sicilia, for an intriguing presentation and wine tasting of their stunning and limited production wines made from the ancient grape varieties of Nocera and Nero d'Avola. 

Planeta achieved the prestigious listing of ranking 17 in The World's most admired wine brands 2021, by Drinks International.
