From the Ashes | $80 plus gst

  • Metrovino 722 11 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2R 0E4 Canada (map)

Instructor: Matt Leslie

Volcanoes are one of the most magnificent forces on our planet. While we often envisage their destructive impact leaving a desolate and scorched earth in its wake, like a Phoenix, new life arises from the ashes. 

We’ll take a look at how these surface vents create mineral rich soils upon which grapes not only grow, but thrive. Let’s navigate the globe from the Azores to Oregon; Hungary to California and more, to see how various forms of volcanic soils lend character and charm to wines of all colours.

This Tasting is Sold Out!
