Hosted by David Gleave MW

“One of the UK’s greatest experts on Italian wine”. (Jancis Robinson, FT 2017).

 David is one of only 356 Masters of Wine in the world. The MW is the highest and toughest of all wine qualifications. More humans have been into space than have passed the course. He is founder of Liberty wines, who represent many of the best of Italy’s artisan wineries.

 Jancis Robinson, a fellow MW and Britain’s most respected wine journalist reckons David to be the post popular member of the UK wine trade, and “one of the UK’s greatest experts on Italian wine”.

 From Abruzzo round to Campania, plus Sicily and Sardinia, we find millennia-old grape varieties, vineyards and traditions, long pre-dating the Roman era. Grape varieties such as Aglianico Hellenic and Nero di Troia the black grape of Troy tell of ancient traditions – grape varieties which have been grown on these arid slopes continuously since ancient times.

 These rather forgotten and far-flung regions may not have the international presence of high-priced northerners such as Piedmont, but they pack a punch and rival any of the world’s wine regions for authenticity and fascinating history. The tasting will include the wine of Farnese who have twice been voted Italy’s best winery.  Their range includes ‘Edizione’, voted Italy’s best red wine.
