Montepulciano Tuscany Zoom Wine Dinner Event with Guest Speaker Andrea Cragnotti from Italy
Time & Location
About the Event
Saturday March 13th in Montepulciano, Tuscany, Italy Zoom Wine Dinner!
We are traveling next to one of my favorite hill towns in Tuscany, Montepulciano. This beautiful hill town holds a special place in my heart for sure, from many memorable visits over the years. Join us for a fabulous evening tasting great red wines from the Montepulciano area, known for the Vino Nobile, paired with a delectable dinner based on Tuscan specialties. Our Guest Speaker is Andrea Cragnotti, the owner of Corte alla Flora, who will be joining us from Italy to talk about the wines and the typical food of the area for the wine pairings. Corte alla Flora has cultivated incredible vines, curated the soils, and stayed true to its Italian heritage. 2 of the 4 wines included in our dinner you may have never heard of: Loggiato and Pugnitello, and we are bringing the Pugnitello into Maryland through our distributor for the first time in Maryland. We can't wait to try these wines with you!
For this dinner, 4 of the 5 courses are being prepared by Chef Giancarlo from Scossa Restaurant, and Chef Alfredo from Alfredo's Osteria in Easton, so all you have to do is plate the first course and warm up the others, and enjoy with the wines we have paired with the food! We will be transported to Montepulciano for the evening with great wine, food and company!
