Bellavista & Petra Wine Tasting Workshop
Come join us in this 2-hour workshop to explore more about the Bellavista and Petra winery from Italy guided by our guest speaker- Ms. Roberta Picco, featuring a selection of 6 wines to taste, and know more about their characteristics, aroma and flavours!
The Bellavista Winery was founded in Franciacorta in 1977 by businessman Vittorio Moretti, who decided to transform a small family-run winemaking activity based on a few hectares of vineyards into a full-fledged winery.
Near the ancient town of Suvereto, land of the suvere, the majestic cork oaks that grow on the iron-bearing hills of the Val di Cornia, looking out over the Tyrrhenian sea, amidst the spectacular landscape of Maremma, Petra makes its magic. A sort of enchanted valley, where the Mediterranean shrubs complete for space with olive groves and vineyards. The unique wine cellar was designed by the renowned architect Mario Botta, which embellished the landscape and integrates with its surroundings, exploiting the slope of the hillside to turn the grapes into wines in the least impactful way possible…
