An evening in the vineyard | 25th and 26th April 2018
‘An evening in the vineyard’
The third of our monthly wine tasting events in collaboration with some of Italy’s most renowned producers.
The history of MARCHESI DE’ CORDANO winery goes back to the beginning of the 18th century. A descendant of the Marquis of Florence, Francesco DE’ CORDANO, inherited lands which had earlier belonged to the Kingdom of Naples.
The estate was a magnificent land then and still is today. The western side presents a range of hills which runs up the foot of the mountains of Abruzzo and it descends to the sea in the East. It is a hilly territory with a warm climate which enjoys gentle breezes and is particularly noted for its cultivation of vines and olive trees. This land inspired the first production of wine which was produced for the local nobility. As a reward for his wine-making skills Francesco Cordano was knighted in 1726 taking the title of “Vinattiere”.
This long tradition has been maintained and enhanced by Francesco and Vittorio who continue to build on the great achievements of their ancestors by evolving the technological profile and enhancing the quality levels of MARCHESI DE’ CORDANO vines and wine production. Their experimentation has made use of a combination of vines from indigenous stock as well as vines from abroad.
The wines are completely pure and are guaranteed free from any additives such as paraffin, cyanic and methyl compounds. They are also suitable for vegetarians since it does not use any gelatin to alter the natural fermentation process.
You will be served 3 different wines that will accompany a 3-course typical dinner from the Abruzzo region. We are offering also a vegetarian tasting menu.
