Each Wednesday join our Sommelier and GM Tim Rawding for a Marsh House Bar takeover!
“Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of February it gets pretty darn cold almost everywhere in the continental US except Florida and California. With that said, we are taking our conversations to warmer seas around the globe and pouring our favorite island wines. Yes these are made from grapes grown on an island and yes we would much rather be there than battling ice storms and sketchy winter weather in Nashville. But the wines we are featuring are faced with their fair share of challenges, being grown on volcanic soils, steep cliffs and blustery winds. The results? Pure magic. Come enjoy a few glasses and attempt to get transported.”
This week featuring: COS Zibibbo in Pithos, Sicilia 2016
In the early 80s, the Cilia, Occhipinti and Strano families created COS and forever changed the way we look at Sicilian wine. Today, Occhipinti and Cilia still thrive on the southern shores of Sicily within the Cerasuolo di Vittoria appellation. Their most recent bottling of a dry expression of Zibibbo, also known as Muscat de Alexandria, presents a floral aroma and voluptuous texture that only these legends could execute. At $15 a glass, I hope you take your time with every whiff and every taste.
