Aperitivo Italiano: Volcanic Soils

June 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


“What is the meaning of “Aperitivo Italiano”? An aperitivo (or apéritif) is often described as being similar to the American happy hour, but in reality, it’s much more than that. An Aperitivo is joyous and mood-lifting, it relaxes you after a day of work or prepares you for the night to come. Aperitivo, with its cheerful yet elegant nature, is a staple in Italy and has been getting more and more appreciated around the world.

At the ICCC we have created the Aperitivo Italiano nights: a series of 3 wine classes in June and July, in a relaxed and joyful environment, for you to discover unordinary wines. The second edition of Aperitivo Italiano: Volcanic Soils, Terroir Based Wines, will make you discover some of the most complex and intense wines hail from volcanic terroirs.

Riccardo Guerrieri enjoys the challenge of overseeing the wine program at Vinology and maintaining an inventory of over 400 different labels from all around the world. Riccardo and the team of sommeliers at Vinology love sharing these phenomenal, cutting-edge wines with Houstonians through rotating wine flights and special weekly seminars and tastings.
