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!

Next stop:

THE OLDEST WINERY IN ITALY
and where Chianti Classico Wine was born


Since 1141, the castle called Castello di Brolio pictured above has belonged to the Ricasoli family.  This stunning medieval piece of architecture sits atop an isolated hill in the southern Chianti Classico countryside and has done so for over ten centuries.  From there, you can admire breathtaking views over the Chianti region.  On clear days you can even see Siena, which is about 12 miles away.

The castle houses the Barone Ricasoli Winery, the oldest winery in Italy and believed to be the second oldest in the world.  In 1872 Baron Bettino Ricasoli invented the formula for Chianti Classico wine after more than 30 years of research.

Today Barone Ricasoli is the largest winery in the area with 240 acres of vineyards and modern state-of-the-art wine-making facilities.  It produces three million bottles of wine per year.

Join us as we explore five delicious wines from this enchanting place!

Accompanying the five is an indulgent five-course dinner, lovingly prepared by the Super Tuscan himself, Maurizio.  Check out the menu and wine selections below.
Gustosissimo! (Italian for Yummy!)

Indulgence is how we roll, so come hungry! 

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