Volcanic Wine Dinner with Author Robert Camuto

Calling all lovers of volcanic soil wines, especially those that celebrate the magical wines of Mt. Etna!

Tavolàta Stone Way is excited to be hosting Author Robert Camuto for not one but two nights featuring the wines of Southern Italy! Robert is an author and journalist specializing in wine culture and epicurean travel writing. He will be sharing stories from his new book South of Somewhere as he presents the wines of the evening. All attendees of the dinners will also receive a copy of Robert's South of Somewhere book included with the price of their dinner.

“[Camuto’s] new book, 'South of Somewhere: Wine, Food and the Soul of Italy' is his best yet, a razor-sharp evocation of the people, places and points-of-view that captures both the fatalism so often encountered in southern Italy and the stubborn refusal of its inhabitants to knuckle under.”— Eric Asimov, The New York Times
