>As summer 2006 students enter into their third week in Perugia, some participated in a wine tasting which was held yesterday evening at local winery or enoteca, Enone. Students were given a glimpse of the art of enjoying wine–from how to combine wine to compliment food to how to correctly open a bottle. Three wines were tasted; a light, sparkling white from Umbria, a crisp white from Venezie and a deep Sicilian red. The event was conducted in English by local sommelier, Silvia Bartolini.
The tasting is part of a series of cultural activities for students scheduled this summer. Last night’s wine tasting was the first of two groups of tastings. The next wine tasting will be held Monday, June 12 at the same venue.
