at Villa Papafava

Vulcanei is the main tasting event of wines from volcanic soils in Italy.

This year’s edition is organised by Consorzio Vini Colli Euganei jointly with Strada del Vino dei Colli Euganei and will be held at Villa Papafava in the wonderful Frassanelle Estate.
The best selection of volcanic wines from all over Italy will be available for tasting, enriched by a few Spanish, Portuguese and Greek wineries.
There will be 26 producers from Colli Euganei, 10 producers and 5 Consortiums from the other volcanic regions of Italy, for a total of more than 50 wineries. Special guests will be vignerons from Azores Islands and Canaries, with the return of Santorini wines.

A unique sensorial journey to discover volcanic wines and their terroir, matched with typical Euganean dishes.
You will find the “Goose-burger” and a goose pasticcio by Michele Littamè, cold cuts by Salumificio Fontana di Este, cheese by Valle Madonnina, a sweet pie by La Pignara, fish dishes by Nautilus and a selection of coffee and chocolate by Gusto Top.

Three guided tastings will be handled by the Italian Association of Sommelier (A.I.S. Veneto).
A unique opportunity is taking place at 3.45pm: a Masterclass lead by John Szabo, a Master Sommelier of Canadian origin, considered as the greatest volcanic wines expert in the world.
