MOUNT EDEN WINE CLUB | THE PECULIAR REDS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN
With over 300 different red grape varieties across the Globe, it's safe to say there will be a decent hand full (or more accurate, a bucket full) of varieties you have yet to try – or even heard of! We'll focus on the reds from Europe, where centuries of history helped carve the foundation of todays wine producing regions, from the Middle East to the Spanish Coast.
Tonight we will taste various grape varieties, and explore the different wine making traditions and regulations. Our tour will begin in Lebanon, one of the oldest wine producing regions, where the Phoenicians domesticated grapes 5000 years ago. Then we'll visit the Northern Provinces of Italy, hike the volcanic slopes of Sicily, and finish with a quick visit to Galicia and Valencia of Spain.
