We are delighted to announce we will be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of our Fatalone organic wines in London! We will be presenting 15 vintages of our Fatalone Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva dating back to 1988 in a vertical tasting masterclass. This historic event will take place on Wednesday, 7th of March and will be hosted by Les Caves de Pyrene, an internationally recognized importer of high quality natural wines in London. Pasquale Petrera, Fatalone’s own 5th generation winemaker, will be conducting the masterclass. The tasting panel will include internationally renowned press. The event will be followed by a traditional Apulian dinner paired to all of our wines.
The Masterclass and wine dinner will be held at Enoteca Turi in London. This event is by invitation only.
