We’re delighted to be hosting one of our favourite wine producers here in Perth on the evening of Friday, 9th November.
As befits the occasion, we’re Going to Town, quite literally. And we'd like you to join us.
The producer is Planeta, the doyen of Sicilian wine. As Hugh Johnson’s World Atlas of Wine puts it, “the innovative and savvy Planeta family has put modern Sicilian wine on the world map”.
Quite simply, Sicily, an island of (still) much untapped potential, has seen its reputation hugely enhanced by Planeta’s dynamism. That characteristic is fully reflected in their diverse range, which spans five very different Sicilian areas (macro-terroirs, if you will) from the island’s coasts to the heights of Etna.
And from international varietals to those found only on Sicily, from unusually velvety reds to complex whites, the Planeta range is among the very most popular that we offer at Exel.
That range, you can sample in detail with Planeta in November.
We’ll be joined by their winemaker, Patricia Toth (below), who will guide you through a broad selection of the Planetas, all to be enjoyed with a selection of accompanying canapés.
We’re particularly pleased to be holding the event in the Sculpture Hall of the Perth Museum and Art Gallery: a splendid space for some splendid wines.
The tasting will run from 6:30 to 8:30 pm that evening and there will be 80 tickets available.
We’re expecting a full and busy evening, but to get everything sealed down early, we’re offering an Early Bird ticket, priced £17.50 a head, from now until 5pm on Friday, October 12th (4 weeks before the event). Thereafter, tickets will be £20.00. This product page allows you to buy tickets on-line.
This promises to be quite an evening for wine enthusiasts and the wine-curious alike. If you can be there, we and Planeta would be delighted to see you.
