Certified Sommelier John Riddick will explain the correlation between wine composition and the amazing volcanic soil type.
Volcanoes are raw and powerful. They explode and release molten lava unto all their surroundings. Once settled, the lava provide unique nutrition for plants, especially grape vines. They resulting wines exude incredible mineral components, tannin, and complexity.
Various volcanic wines will be sampled with cheese and charcuterie will also be provided.
