In just over a week, 30 of the finest producers in one of Italy's most remarkable wine regions will be pouring their wines in London exclusively for Decanter.
Friuli Venezia Guilia, bordered by both Austria and Slovenia, has long been one of Italy’s most fascinating and diverse wine regions.
Its white wines are famed both for their crisp elegance and – in the case of many producers – their extraordinary oxidative qualities.
Now Decanter Events presents a superb opportunity to taste the wines and meet the people who make them, at an evening tasting at the Institute of Directors in London’s Pall Mall.
Such renowned producers as Castello di Buttrio, Fondazione Villa Russiz, Ronco del Gelso, Colutta Giorgiok, Tercic Matijaz and Petrussa will be present.
Many of these are celebrated for their local varietals. Tercic Matijaz, for example, is on the Slovenian border in the easternmost part of northern Italy, and works with Ribolla Gialla and Friulano, while Petrussa will be offering Ribolla Nera, Verduzzo Friulano and Tocai Friulano.
In all 30 producers will be present at the tasting, which takes place at the Institute of Directors, London SW1, on Monday 24 October 2011. It is open to members of the wine trade during the day and held open exclusively for Decanter readers from 6.30 to 8.30 in the evening.
