Join Cote’s Celebrated Sommelier for Eater Wine Club

Hosted by Victoria James, the theme is island wines, with pours from Corsica, Sicily, Sardinia, and the Canary Islands

An island is maybe not the first place one thinks of when it comes to vast vineyards and wine production. But from the fiercely independent isle of Corsica to the subtropical archipelago of Madeira, and the Spain-meets-Africa influences on the Canary Islands to Italian siblings Sicily and Sardinia, there are plenty of islands producing wines that stand up to their more well-known mainland cousins.

While they all have different climates, these island have a few traits in common that bode well for great wine production — namely a relative proximity to the ocean, plus all that volcanic soil.

Eater is excited to be joined by Cote’s Victoria James on September 24 to celebrate island wines for the return of Eater Wine Club, our rotating wine party where leaders of the wine world are invited to share their favorite styles, grapes, subregions, and themes.

In a classroom-style setup at the Eater Test Kitchen, introduced by Eater’s Stefanie Tuder, James will walk you through her favorite wines from Corsica, Sardinia, Madeira, and the Canary Islands, paired with snacks provided by the team at Murray’s Cheese — all for a $40 ticket.

Note: This event is sold out.
