ISCHIA VINTAGE 2016
From October 29 to November 1 the thirteenth edition of ISCHIA VINTAGE will be held at L'Albergo della Regina Isabella. This annual event is dedicated to lovers of good food and good wine and, even more, to all lovers of beauty, not just because the location is an excuse to spend one last weekend at the beach, but also it is a must for those who love the good things in life.
Conceived in 2002 by the family’s friend Gaddo della Gherardesca, famously recognized as purveyor of elegance and sobriety, this event is not only for tasting wine like other wine festivals, but offers a unique opportunity to learn about and become familiar with the great Italian and international wine producers . Over the years, a parade of stars has passed through the wine scene at the Regina Isabella, characters that have made Italy famous in the world, including: Ferdinando Frescobaldi, Filippo Mazzei, Alessio Planeta, José Rallo and Lucio Tasca D' Almerita's, just to name a few.
Also for the next event the Vignerons present were selected by Ian D'Agata, from years at the helm of the event, wine writer, oenologist, reviewer and taster for the International Wine Cellar Stephen Tanzer, Decanter and Le Figaro, one Italian journalist called upon to comment on the French wines on the most prestigious French newspaper online.
Unique wines are a result of history, tradition and the passion of families united by the call of the land. These wines have been chosen to accompany the always changing and sophisticated menu of the two chefs of the Regina Isabella, Pasquale Palamaro Executive chef of the two main restaurants, and chef of the Michelin star Indaco, a small gourmet restaurant inside the hotel.
In this edition we have added some special guests: The wines from different areas of Italy will be available for tasting in the Sala Azzurra; The tea will be available at the tea time at Bar Regina Isabella; The liquors, together with chocolate will be available for the delight of the palate at Bar Regina Isabella after dinner.
As usual, guests of the hotel during this last weekend of the season, can partake in guided tours with Ian to the beautiful island wineries to learn about the properties and taste wines, which are excellent examples of the extreme viticulture.
In addition the Spa of the Regina Isabella offers two special “DiWine” treatments using creams, balms and oils with anti oxidative agents of the vegetable stam cell extracts from grape, awakening “sleeping” cells for a youth and radiance skin.
