Welcome Bubbles:

Zardetto ‘Z’ Prosecco Brut – Veneto

Regular Price:$16.99 Tasting Price:$14.99

Lemon-yellow in color with elegant, refined bubbles that form a hearty white froth. Aromas of white flowers, apricot and herbs create a delicately soft bouquet. The palate is comprised of citrus, orange blossoms and stone fruits. Fresh citrus and floral notes linger on the finish. It's an ideal apertif and the perfect choice for celebrations large and small. Not to mention, an excellent partner in sparkling cocktails.

First Course:

Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino – Sardinia

Regular Price:$19.99 Tasting Price:$17.99

Vermentino often shows the fragrance of macchia, the mix of evergreen shrubs and herbs that typifies the Sardinian landscape. Costamolino hints at aromas of pine and mint coupled with ripe stone fruit and sweet citrus. The palate is at once vibrant and textural and finishes with lingering acidity.

Food Pairing: Shrimp, mascarpone, and basil stuffed roasted heirloom tomato with balsamic drizzle.

Second Course:

Zenato Lugana di San Benedetto – Veneto

Regular Price:$18.99 Tasting Price:$15.99

Pale lemon-green in color, San Benedetto Lugana offers appealing notes of peaches, citrus, bananas, and herbs, which are underscored by crisp acidity and supple body on the palate.

Food Pairing: Pasta Carbonara

Third Course:

Castellare Chianti Classico – Tuscany

Regular Price:$25.99 Tasting Price:$23.99

A bright ruby red in color, this Chianti Classico shows well-integrated aromas of tart red cherries, tobacco, sunbaked earth, and a hint of cedar spice. On the palate, firm structure and refreshing acidity make it a very versatile food wine.

Food Pairing: Eggplant rollatini with roasted garlic, fresh plum tomato marinara

Fourth Course:

Castello di Neive Barbera d’Alba Santo Stefano – Piedmont

Regular Price:$26.99 Tasting Price:$23.99

Dark ruby red in color with hints of crushed raspberries and violets, undertones of herbs, woodland berries and cacao make this wine truly unforgettable. On the palate, velvety tannins and a medium body make for an elegant, yet structured wine.

Fifth Course:

Di Majo Norante Don Luigi – Molise

Opaque ruby in color with garnet reflections, Don Luigi is a richly aromatic wine with layered notes of ripe wild berries, prunes, charcoal, cocoa, and licorice. On the palate, well-balanced tannins and a full-bodied mouthfeel make for an unforgettable wine experience.
