Sicilia en Primeur with Wine Channel TV
Sip Some Sicily Tour – Sicilia en Primeur
Sicilia en Primeur, created to tell the story of the viticultural year in Sicily.
We’re always excited when we get to visit wine regions around the world. Sip Some Sicily returns for 2015 with Wine Channel TV visiting legendary wine regions and winemakers of Sicily. Assovini Sicilia is “the club of Sicilian wine-producing companies” and we’re thrilled take part in the Sicilia en Primeur event.
Assovini Sicilia was created in 1998 by 3 entrepreneurs – Diego Planeta of Planeta, Giacomo Rallo of Donnafugata and Lucio Tasca d’Almerita of Conte Tasca d’Almerita. And we love that they call themselves “the club” of Sicilian wines.
The event also provides Wine Channel TV with the opportunity to meet producers from the region and take part in wine tours around the region. Sicilia en Primeur is the official presentation of the wines from the 2014 vintage. Alessio Planeta, gave us a glimpse into this years vintage: “The 2014 vintage in Sicily has been described as “the perfect year”, characterized as it was by ideal climatic conditions during the whole of the growing cycle of the vines. A cool, rainy spring was followed by a dry summer, which concluded with a bright, warm September, and during the delicate period of the harvest there was hardly any rain at all.”
Stay tuned to Wine Channel TV for all the fun at Sicilia en Primeur!
