May 15 Seminar
"Wines of Sicily"
- Jackalope Grill
- 4:00-6:00 (Arrive 15 min. early.)
On Monday, May 15, Women Tasting Wine will feature Wines from Sicily, presented by Anfrei Dragos of The Estates Group. Sicily is Italy's southernmost region, and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. For more than 2500 years Sicily (Sicilia in Italian) has been a significant center of Mediterranean viniculture, although the reputation and style of its wines has changed sidnificantly over that time. Although once famous for sweet Muscats, and later fortified Marsala, the island's best known wines are now its dry table wines produced under the regional IGT title, Terre Siciliane.
Though many things have changed, most of Sicily's indigenous grape varieties and time-honored winegrowing traditions continue to play an important role. Thanks to meticulous vineyard tending and gentle grape handling in Sicily's wineries, Sicilia DOC wines feature the medley of flavors that sicily has been known for since ancient times and which represent some of the best wines of Italy.
Join us as we taste some of these wines accompanied by Chef Tim's complementary creations.
We will meet on Monday, May 15, from 4:00-6:00 at Jackalope Grill. The cost is $45.

We need to have our final numbers in on the Tuesday before the event for the purpose of ordering the food so payment needs to be received by Sunday, May 7. Please note the cut-off date!
Remember, reservations are on a first come, first served basis and your payment is your reservation. Since we have to have our “head count” in by Tuesday morning, there will be no refunds for cancellations after 9:00 AM Tuesday, May 9, or for no-shows on the day of the seminar.
We hope to see you in May and at future monthly Women Tasting Wine Seminars!
