After the drive to Linguaglossa, we were privileged to have dinner at Statella Park with 5 producers from the region, along with several Italian journalists. An endless spread of food included buffalo ricotta, thin strips of roasted donkey meat, prickly pears and many more interesting dishes, too numerous to list. Producers generously provided a variety of their wines, which allowed us all to calibrate our palates to Etna. Best of all, it was a relaxed evening of chatting with colleagues, sharing experiences and thoughts from Taormina Gourmet, networking and bonding for our VIA community. Best moment? Raising our glasses to celebrate Andrea Eby IWA for her happy result in the Master of Wine Theory exam. Congratulations once again!
