Wine Dinner

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!

Piemonte occupies most of Italy’s Northwest, sharing borders with France and Switzerland.  It almost reaches the Mediterranean coast.  Piemonte (aka Piedmont) translates to “at the foot of the mountains”, which is a fitting descriptor for its sub-alpine location and the fact that it’s surrounded by mountains on three sides — the Alps to the north and west and the Apennines to the south.  It doesn’t draw as many tourists as other Italian areas, but (surprise, surprise!) it’s known for its bucolic scenery and superb dining.

We have lots of new grape varietals to explore from these foggy foothills.
It has more DOCGs (17) and DOCs (42) than any other region.
The blend of rich culture, centuries-old tradition and stunning landscapes can all be tasted in Piemonte’s unique wines.

Maurizio’s crazy-good culinary genius will be expressed with an indulgent four-course dinner, accompanied by five aroma-filled, lively and elegant wines.

 Indulgence is how we roll, so come hungry! 

It’s always a celebration of Italian food and wine at GRAZIE!
