Slow Food and Sagraitalia wine event

Slow Food Norwich is very pleased to be holding a wine and food event in Norwich on Wednesday 25th January, showcasing wines from the Le Marche region of Italy. The wines will be from a producer who is closely involved with Slow Wine in Italy and it is part of the project to promote a Slow wine event in the UK similar to the one that is being held in the USA next spring. The Slow wine event at the horticultural halls in Victoria, London last March to launch their new app for the iPad proved very popular and we hope to emulate this type of event in London, Cambridge and Norwich in 2012.

The Le Marche event is being held at the St Benedicts restaurant in central Norwich, hosted by Jane Raffles the owner of the Raffles restaurant group and in co operation with, the specialist Italian food and party event group.
All the wines will be from the organic wine producer Centanni vini which is based near the historic Le Marche village of Montefiore dell'Aso in the south of the region and tickets for the event are available from the St Benedicts restaurant website.

The wines from Centanni are all certified as organically produced and they will include the white Pecorino and Passerina wines, a red Rosso Piceno and a Rosato. There will also be a special and quite rare wine for dessert, the Vino e Visciole, which is a sour cherry wine, typical of the central and northern regions of Le Marche.
A representative of the owner will be present to talk the guests through the wines as the evening progresses and we hope that this will be the first of many similar events to be held in Norwich in 2012, including a Norfolk cider tasting in April.
