Sicily is a large island at the southern tip of Italy where literal truckloads of wine is made. Still today, the majority of wine made here is unremarkable and consumed locally or shipped off in bulk. However, in the northwestern corner of the island, there is an active volcano called Mount Etna. It’s an astonishing place that pops up out of the sea. It is also home to one of our favorite Italian white grapes, Carricante. Carricante (Car-E-Cant-eh) produces the wines called “Etna Bianco” or the White of Etna. This is a grape that has only grown on the volcano, and until 15-20 years ago, no one cared about. Although we recommend drinking these wines young and in copious amounts, they also tend to age well so if you see a version on a menu with a couple of years, don't be afraid.
We source the highest quality products from around the world and curate pairings to satisfy tastebuds across the full spectrum of cheese, charcuterie, and accoutreerments. Expect to fall in love with new favorites alongside tried and true staples.
Each box comes with a blueprint and instructions for prep and assembly, as well as the story on each product for when your guests ask, "What kind of cheese is this?" Whether you've been entertaining Slow Table style for years or you've always aspired to, you'll come off as a pro every time, in a fraction of the time that it would take to do it all yourself.
