Founded as a “wine project” by the Martusciello family of Quarto, province of Naples, Grotta del Sole has made a name focusing on “tipicita” or authenticity — bringing attention to the quality wine traditions of the long ignored Campania region.

Tuesday, May 17th @ 7:00PM

Salvatore and Brennan from Downey Selections have selected a wonderful diversity of wines from the Grotta del Sole portfolio. We will be pouring and talking about each of the wines and the specific part of the region where they are made. We will taste:

  • Asprinio D’Aversa NV
  • Coda di Volpe 2009
  • Fiano d’Avellino 2009
  • Falanghina “Costa di Cuma” 2008
  • Gragnano 2010
  • Aglianico 2008
  • Piedirosso riserva “Monteguaro” 2007

These wines are small production and are not widely available. A selection of these wines will be reserved for tasting guests only to purchase at Cork Market. This tasting is $25 and attendance will be limited to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of our guests.
