Saturday 12 December
We asked a good Friend of Sorrento, Cristian Fusco, to provide wine tasting that would sample some of the finest boutique wines from the Campania region. Cristian is head sommelier at La Sponda, the Michelin-starred restaurant at 5* Le Sirenuse hotel in Positano. Previous experience includes the 5* San Pietro Positano in Positano, Zafferano restaurant in London and Theo Randall at the InterContinental hotel. To share his passion for wine with visitors from around the world Cristian, with his partner Jenny, founded Swirl the Glass to provide wine tours and tastings from Positano.
Qualifications include certifications from the Italian Association of Sommeliers (AIS) and the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET).
The wines are chosen from Campania's three major wine producing regions,
Avellino, Tuarasi and the area around Vesuvius.
Fiano di Avellino DOCG white
Vesuvius/Lacryma Christi DOC white
Taurasi DOCG red
