Event Details

The Benanti family has been making wines on the slopes of Mt. Etna since the late 1800's.  In 1988, Dr. Giuseppe Benanti started a five year investigation of the native soils and varietals of the region, using the most modern practices of vinification to revive indigenous grapes and produce wines that truly relfect Etnean terroir and its history.  Using grapes like Carricante, Nerello Mascallese and Nerello Cappuccio, Benanti now makes some of the best and most authentically Etnean wines on the market.

These wines have been favorites of ours for years, and we are delighted to showcase them as part of our Spring Wine Dinner.  Chef Baldacci has created a five course meal to pair with five different wines, and the dinner promises to be full of fresh spring offerings like peas, leeks, artichokes, lamb and even goat!

We hope you can join us.
