Native Italian Grapes - Settimana della Cucina Italiana



Native Italian Grapes - Settimana della Cucina Italiana

For the Settimana della Cucina Italiana series, join Leslie Rosa sommelier and founder of La Dolce Vigna Wine + Culture Tour Co. for a fascinating journey through a selection of Italian unique grape varieties, the wines they make, as well as the cuisine that traditionally accompanies them. No other country in the world even comes close to offering the number of unique grape varieties found in Italy, so do not miss this occasion to become familiar with many of them.




After a decade of working in the art world for eminent institutions and artists in New York and London, Leslie moved to Italy, fell in love with Italian wine and became a certified sommelier through the Associazione Italiana Sommelier. She created La Dolce Vigna in response to the large, impersonal tours she came across while living in Italy. Her passion is to provide clients with curated tours and itineraries in which each day tells a story and offers an in-depth look at the history and culture of a particular region. When not leading tours in Italy, California or Argentina, you can find Leslie sharing her knowledge at pop-up wine tastings, writing for Slow Food’s Wine Guide or getting lost somewhere beautiful with her watercolor set.
