ViA VECCHiA cordially invites you to join us on Tuesday, June 15th as we welcome Mary Taylor of Mary Taylor Wines.
Mary Taylor partners with grower-producers who farm their land respectfully and who are true artisans. While the majority of wineries in the Mary Taylor portfolio are independent, they also work with two small co-operatives (one in Bordeaux and one in Saint- Pourcain) whose viticulture practices align with their values of sustainability, minimal intervention, and artisanship.
In terms of winemaking, Mary Taylor’s priority is to highlight the true diversity of terroirs. As a result, the producers uniformly employ little to no filtration, limit the amount of sulfur added before bottling, and choose to carry out their fermentations via natural or local yeast strains. They also avoid the use of overly intrusive young oak in order to emphasize the underlying expression of vintage, grape, and place.
Mary Taylor will be discussing the ethos of her wine portfolio. This event will be held indoors in our expansive private back space of Via Vecchia. We will be selling tickets to 20 people for the event. Groups that buy tickets together will be sat together. All groups will be placed six feet away from one another. Masks must be worn when moving throughout the restaurant and any time anyone is not eating or drinking. All food and wine will be included in the price of the ticket. This is not a dinner event. Chris Peterman, Wine Director and Sommelier of Via Vecchia will be pouring. Chris Peterman is the owner of Hart and Harp Wines the sole distributor of Mary Taylor Wines in Maine.
Mary and Chris will be pouring:
