Vive la France or Viva l'Italia? In the end, it was a tie!
Everyone had a great time at the recent wine-tasting event organized by the Catania and Grenoble committees. It was held on Saturday evening, September 12, 2015, at the Wyndham Garden Phoenix Midtown.
Eight excellent wines from both countries competed by pair in a blind-tasting exquisitely led by Tom Rustwick and Lorenzo Mattoni of Alliance Beverage Distributing Company.
The winners of each comparison were:
1. Domaine de Pouy, IGP Cotes de Gascogne (France)
2. Villa Ponciago Fleurie, Beaujolais Burgundy (France)
3. Firriato Branciforti, Nero D’Avola Sicily (Italy)
4. La Maialina Gertrude, Super Tuscan Blend (Italy)
In between tasting delightful wines and voting for their favorites, the guests enjoyed delicious French and Italian cheeses, olives and bread; they networked with each other; and they admired the beautiful paintings of Italian artist Giorgio Satta. Two rich baskets -- one with French wine and food, the other with Italian liqueur, music and books -- were raffled at the end of the evening, benefiting the programs of Phoenix Sister Cities. The basket winners were very excited!
It was a wonderful night of great enjoyment for all, just as the organizers from the two committees had hoped. Cheers to Italia and France!
