Italian girl on vespa
That’s Arianna Occhipinti from Sicily. Wanna try her wine? Then come to the first-ever San Diego Natural Wine Summit on Sunday August 9, featuring the jams of DJ Greyboy.
Her SP68 is one of the more-than 25 wines will be pouring together with our “farm-to-table” menu for just $45.
SP68 is one of the hottest labels in the world of natural wine today. Named after the “strada provinciale 68” or “provincial road 68” that runs leads to her village in rural Sicily, the wine is a blend of two native Sicilian grapes, Frappato (which gives the wine sexy, luscious fruit flavors and aromas) and Nero d’Avola (which imparts tannic structure and notes of seductive licorice and eastern spice). A rising star of natural wine, Arianna says it expresses the terroir of her land just like the road that leads through it. We’ve met her a few times: she always pours barefoot at her tastings — au naturel…
Come taste her wine with us on Sunday!
We recently read that drinking Tuscan wine can improve your sex life. If Sangiovese can help in the love department, just think what spicy Sicilian Nero d’Avola can do!
