Soave is coming to London! Italy’s most stylish white wine has come down from the Venetian hillsides and is heading to four UK cities for a #SummerofSoave. Soave Wine has teamed up with Clerkenwell London on Wednesday 21st June from 4.30 – 8.30 to offer consumers a taste of Cru Soave from dynamic young producers and our very best single vineyard sites, hosted by Sarah Abbott MW.
“In recent years, Soave has been too easily dismissed”, explains Sarah Abbott, “It is probably the most famous – and definitely the most exported – Italian still white wine following the post-war drive for consistency and efficiency when this small area became commercially successful.”
The last few decades has seen great strides in the region in terms of quality and research into the terroir and grapes of the area.
“There is a new generation of young winemakers in Soave who are proud of their terroir, and its nuances, and are determined to show that in the wines”, continues Sarah. “There are not just half a dozen producers making elegant, top quality, mineral, nervy Soave. There are scores of them. There have been glowing articles on Soave from influencers, but still awareness is low of this fine wine side to Soave, and of how established it now is.
“We want to encourage people to come along and try the very best wines that Soave has to offer, and learn all about this exciting and dynamic region.”
There will also be the opportunity to win a trip for two to Soave for a weekend of food & wine. The competition will be running on @soavewine social media channels.
