Terra Eataly Wine Dinner Boston Back Bay

The volcanoes of Italy have endowed history with countless legends, landscapes and ultimately, some of the most expressive wines in the world.

“The discerning characteristic of volcanic terroir and the wines it produces lies on the palate. A perceptible, laser like, linear texture that transcends grape variety and region. A palpable austerity and minerality that translates to smoky, ashy, dusty, chalky textures that no other soil is capable of producing.” – The Winebow Group

Guests will enjoy a spectacular five-course wine dinner featuring thoughtfully prepared, hearty dishes by Chef Dan Bazzinotti and guest speakers to explain the unique nuances of each volcanic wine.

Featured wines will include:
Massifitti, Suavia
Erse Etna Bianco, Tenuta di Fessina
Erse Etna Rosso, Tenuta di Fessina
Terra di Lavoro, Galardi
Aglianico del Vulture, Bisceglia
