COME WITH US!
As we tour the wine regions of Italy, we’re enjoying not only exquisite wines but indulging in traditional multi-course dinners reflecting each region’s classic dishes which pair beautifully with wine varietal expressions from the same region. While wine may be considered a ‘cocktail’ in the USA, in Italy its sole purpose is complementing food. And OH how we love how it does that!

JOIN US FOR OUR 22nd
“TOUR OF ITALY” WINE DINNER.
TO THE HEEL
Wednesday, June 20
$75 per person
We’re going way south to the heel tip, about a 13 minute drive from the sea.
The region of PUGLIA is named for the Italian expression “a pluvia” meaning “lack of rain”.
It is also known as APULIA, which is simply its Latin name.
Maurizio’s culinary genius will be showcased with an indulgent five-course dinner,
paired with delizioso boutique Pugliese wines.
Indulgence! It’s how we roll.
Dario Soldan will introduce us to the five unique wines.
He’s Italian born, from the Veneto region.
(Where is the vowel at the end of his name?)
He’s also an Italian wine specialist and Proprietor of Classico Fine Wines.
It’s always a celebration of Italian food and wine at GRAZIE!
