amarone-tours-tommasi-vineyardtommasi-cantina-1bOn Wednesday 19th October, we hosted a very special Wine
Tasting Experience – Amarone Tommasi. We were joined by Elena Zin of Tommasi to guide all in attendance through some of the fabulous wines created by Tommasi.

A famous Veneto House located in Pedemonte in the heart of the “Valpolielena-zincella Classico” region and founded in 1905, the Tommasi Estate has grown steadily over the course of years and today it extends over 195 hectares of
prestigious hillside vineyards blessed for their perfect suitability for grapes.

A selection of Meats, Cheeses and Breads were served on the evening to complement the wines to complete a truly magnificent evening for all.

Tommasi wines are available from our store in Loughlinstown, from our website

More information on Tommasi can be found on the Tommasi website.
