Patricia Tóth, winemaker at Planeta, visited the Landmark hotel in London at the beginning of November for Decanter’s London Fine Wine Encounter – the first since 2019.
Planeta had a stand in the new Cellar Collection room, treating guests to back vintages of Planeta Chardonnay, but there was also a full room of wine fans listening eagerly to Patricia during her discovery tasting masterclass featuring the Sicilian winery’s diverse portfolio of wines.

Tóth made apologies for her English in case it started to ‘sound a bit rustic’, since she had spent the previous few weeks in Planeta’s cellars following harvest, not uttering a word of the language. But she needn’t have worried – Tóth delivered an insightful and passionate lesson on the variety on offer from Italy’s southern island.
