Valtellina wine tasting to support Giardino della Valle

“Valtellina for Il Giardino della Valle” wine tasting will take place on January, 17 at 18.00 in Cernobbio.

Eleonora ScholesThe symbolic connection between Valtellina and Il Giardino della Valle inspired wine expert, journalist and author Eleonora Scholes to run this guided wine tasting. She will explain the unique features of Valtellina, whose wines were known since the Roman times and highly praised by Leonardo da Vinci.

Two typical red wines will be presented – Rosso di Valtellina and Sforzato di Valtellina, the latter made with the laborious appassimento method.

The tasting will be conducted in English.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Associazione Il Giardino della Valle, for further support of the garden in Cernobbio.

The wine tasting is organised with the kind support of Plozza and Nino Negri wineries, Pasticceria Poletti and Albergo Giardino.

A great Nebbiolo grape (known locally as Chiavennasca), steep terraced vineyards, heroic viticulture and Sforzato wines from dried grapes all combine to make Valtellina a unique wine region in Italy.

Valtellina wines are a product of hardship and love – just like the story of Il Giardino della Valle, a delightful garden in Cernobbio created and tirelessly cared for by Nonna Pupa.

The beauty of Valtellina wines and the beauty of Il Giardino della Valle garden are both ultimate expressions of nature that is carefully nurtured by the dedicated human work.

The number of places is limited, please reserve in advance. The venue will be communicated with the confirmation of your reservation.

Charity Wine Tasting hosted by Eleonora Scholes.

Date: January 17, 2020

Minimum donation 20 euros per person.
