Join Dave & Anne Wells of The Healthy Gourmet and Leigh McDaniel & Bryan Thompson of Empire Distributors as they introduce you to several truly lovely Italian wines from importer, Eros Spinozzi, of CuoreRosso Vintners. Italy has worked hard to earn its reputation for being populated by a passionate people. They love. They hate. They eat gorgeous food. They enjoy breathtaking architecture and landscapes at every turn. They treasure a slow meal and good company above most things in life. They care deeply for their land. All of this passion is evident in their daily life, and what is more integral in the Italian day than wine?
Eros Spinozzi’s uncle Eugenio began CuoreRosso wines in 1975, working closely with family owned, small production wineries to introduce Italian wine to the United States. Eugenio became Eros’ mentor in 1994, teaching him to choose wines based on whether they represent the “essential” Italian wine. Today, all of the wines in CuoreRosso’s portfolio are chosen in memory of Eugenio, whose mission was to capture the vine’s heart beat in every glass. We are lucky to have Eros with us for our upcoming tasting, when he will tell you the story of each of the wines you taste. Perhaps he will help to spark that famous Italian passion in you.
As always, the event starts at 6:00. We will serve five wines with three small pairings from Joel. We will charge $20 and your meal will be 10% off if you stay for dinner. This tasting is filling up quickly so don’t wait to call and make your reservation.
