March 27th: Saturday Night in Sicily

Ciao! We are virtually visiting the west coast of Sicily this evening in the Marsala region with Alcesti Winery. The winery owner Gianfranco Palladino and family are making a variety of wines from local grapes here, grown with certified organic  farming and hand-harvesting in a region where a fantastic price-point that isn’t always the norm. They deliver fresh, Sicilian wines ready to drink at a great value price.  Gilda Ferro, Wine Broker, Sommelier & Consultant to Alcesti Vineyards, will be joining us from her home in Palermo, Sicily. Accompanying Gilda is our Wine Sales Representative Jackie Cipriano, who transitioned into the wine industry after a career as an accomplished chef, and her husband is a Sommelier. It will be another great fun and informative evening with "Simpatico" friends, wonderful wines, food and conversation. 

We have planned a menu of a variety of the typical foods of this Sicily region to pair with the 2 bottles of white wines and 2 bottles of red wines plus a bottle of Marsala for the evening to sip with dessert (and is in the Main Course).
