The terroir of volcanic wine regions is a fascinating one filled with stimulating stories. Dramatic eruptions from ancient to recent history have shaped the environments of well-known wine regions like Sicily, Madeira, and the Pacific Northwest. Sicily’s Mount Etna is the world’s most active volcano and produces complex wines from its surrounding valleys and slopes - with some vines reaching close to 3,000 feet! In this class we will discuss the history of these regions, the unique soil types and their benefits to viticulture while tasting six wines and enjoying some delicious cheese.
