A Journey of Malavasie

Malvasia, have you ever heard this before? If so, not many words are needed, if not take the time to check Wikipedia, where the history of this family of wines is told. But if you are in Venice these days—for the America’s Cup World Series or any other reason—take the time to pay a visit to “A Journey of Malavasie, the Wine of Kings, From Karst to Sicily” (Il Viaggio delle Malvasie, Vino dei Re, dal Carso alla Sicilia). Stories, exhibitions, 100 wines from 30 producers, and traditional Venetian food await you next Monday. I’ll do my best to join the… party!

May 14, 2012, from 11:00AM to 7:00PM, Venice, Giardini (the city’s park which usually hosts the Venice Biennale Art Festival).

The event is organized by the Associazione dei Ristoranti della Buona Accoglienza.
