Here at Pasta Evangelists HQ, we’re always seeking new and innovative ways to enrich and indulge ourselves in a little Italianità every now and then. As you’ll probably note, the essence of Italian-ness is a guiding principle for everything we do here… and can you blame us? We implore you to conjure an image more romantic than that of sipping a glass of wine on the stunning, sun-drenched coast of il bel paese.
Perhaps it was this very image that inspired our latest venture - Pasta Loves Wine:
Much like our hugely successful Pause for Pasta initiative, we are looking to inject a dose of Italianità via virtual masterclasses, enjoyed from the comfort of home - the latter aspect particularly relevant in light of this difficult time.
From virtual tastings to tips & theory, our new feature - live every Wednesday evening on our Instagram page - will call upon a host of our favourite wine experts, ranging from producers to sommeliers, buyers to bloggers. Each session will cover a different theme, from Italian to organic wines, as well as providing several expertly advised wine recommendations to enjoy with your pasta, all affordable and available in supermarkets. Additionally, our Pasta Loves Wine segments offer the exclusive opportunity for a Q&A session with our wine experts, ensuring no vino curiosities are left unanswered!
In terms of pasta pairings, we always ensure to showcase dishes and ingredients that are in season, or feature on our menu that week, so you can exercise your new-found pasta-wine pairing knowledge in real-time.
So far we’ve covered “Simple Rules for Sauces” - a masterclass in pairing Italian wines with the most popular pasta sauces, from pomodori to pestos and more. This week's instalment, airing on April 22nd, will focus on “Demystifying Natural & Organic Wine” - a lesson in all things natural wine, including a breakdown of the key characteristics of natural and organic wine, and their perfect pasta accompaniments.
Be sure to join us Wednesday at 7 pm to learn more. Should you not be able to attend our virtual masterclass, they’ll remain on our stories for 24 hours, so you can get your fill of pasta e vino content.
