  1. If you're missing evenings out drinking wine during social-distancing, then I have an alternative for you! I have been organising wine events for Italian wineries for over 15 years and since we can't meet up in person anymore I had to come up with something different so I created Quaranvino Dinner Dates, a programme of online dinner dates hosted by some of Italy's leading wine makers from Sud Tirol to Sicily.    I selected these wine producers as they all have stories to tell and have been pioneering in the wine-making of their region. We'll have dinner with:  Klaus Lentsch of Tenuta Klaus Lentsch, Sud Tirol (28th March) Alessandro Medici of Medici Ermete, Emilia-Romagna (1st April) Raffaele Librandi of Librandi, Calabria (4th April)  Giacomo Garofoli of Garofoli Vini, Marches (8th April)  Giuseppe Nicolis of Nicolis Vini, Veneto (11th April)  José Rallo of Donnafugata, Sicily (15th April).    To share the experience of being at a dinner with a wine-maker, you'll receive the wines we'll taste (1 or 2 bottles according to the box you choose). The Solo box has 1 wine per dinner, the Duo box has 2 bottles and includes an Amarone and a couple of dessert wines. Dinners will be held at 8pm online via a zoom call. Once you order the wines for the events you'll receive details of how to log-in and be part of the events.  All you need to do is decide what to cook!    More info and registration here:   Short video on how it works:   I look forward to having dinner with you soon!    Faye    P.S. All events are held in English.            
  2. You know Slow Food? Well for wine lovers, there is also a Slow Wine Guide the covers Italian (and also some US based wineries) and in 2020, the guide will be celebrating its 10th edition!    Every year the Slow Wine guide is presented in Munich during an event at Eataly with a tasting of over 50 wineries (many of them having won awards either as a winery or for their individual wines). Most of the wineries are organic or biodynamic, some have certified vegan wines, but they are all recognised for their respect for the terroir and the people who work in it.   The event is open to wine lovers from 4.30pm until 8pm. Tickets for the walk-around tasting (taste at your own pace, meet the wine makers themselves), cost 12 euro and can either be bought online here: or at the Eataly Info point.    There will also be a programme of "Taste and Talk" sessions where Slow Wine editor Jonathan Gebser will present 5 wines on a different theme : indigenous grape varieties, Uber Slow Wines, Mountains and volcanoes. These talks are given in German. The tickets for these cost 15 euro, can only be bought online and include entrance to the walk-around tasting.    Any questions, just drop me a line,    Cheers,    Faye
