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 Sagraitalia.com, 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. http://stbenedictsrestaurant.co.uk/wine-tasting-dinners
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.
