This Wednesday 7th March we are having an impromptu wine tasting event with Marco Sara, a lovely young winemaker from northern Italy. We are all very excited at Violet to be hosting this event with Guillaume Aubert of Aubert  & Mascoli. Guillaume and I shared a stall together at Maltby Street Market for a while and have been talking about doing an event together for a long time. Marco was in town, and he not only makes beautiful whites and reds but he is renowned for his sweet wines, so it seemed like the perfect fit.

Marco’s wines are 100% organic and natural as he believes that organic agriculture respects the earth and therefore the vines and is the best way to preserve the quality and authenticity of the grapes. This is something that is close to my heart as well, coming from an agricultural community in Northern California. Many of my friends there are organic farmers and I have always strived to make Violet as organic as possible.

Please come and join us Wednesday at 7:30 at Violet for an hour and a half or so of tasting. We will have some charcuterie and bread and cheese to keep the hunger at bay whilst tasting. I will also make a couple of simple cakes to taste with the sweet wines, mainly using almonds and olive oil in keeping with the Italian palette.

The cost will be £15 to taste. Marco’s wines will be available for purchase on the night only, as we don’t have any storage space in our already teensy shop.

Please RSVP by email only to Violet subject: Marco Sara Event. Space is extremely limited so please get in touch ASAP

We look forward to seeing you this Wednesday!
