Italian Grappa Tasting Italian Cultural Centre February 11th

11 Jan

GrappaYou are invited to an Italian Grappa Tasting at the Italian Cultural Centre, 3075 Slocan Street, on February 11th.   Grappa is a uniquely Italian alcoholic beverage that is made from discarded grape seeds, stalks and steams that are the by-product of the winemaking process. It has been called Italy’s ‘elixir’ and has been around for many generations. It was popular in Italy and mainly produced there, but is now being made by distilleries in various parts of the world including just south of Vancouver in Oregon.  On the evening of February 11th, Carmen d’Onofrio of Stile Brands will take you through a tasting of 7 Italian grappas. Having had the pleasure of taste tasting grappas in Italy, we expect this to be a very delicious experience.  Tickets for this event are $45 and can be purchased by contacting the Italian Cultural Centre at 604.430.3337 or online.  The event runs from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the Trattoria Hall.
