What is the meaning of “Aperitivo Italiano”? An aperitivo (or apéritif) is often described as being similar to the American happy hour, but in reality, it’s much more than that. An Aperitivo is joyous and mood-lifting, it relaxes you after a day of work or prepares you for the night to come. Aperitivo, with its cheerful yet elegant nature, is a staple in Italy and has been getting more and more appreciated around the world.

Join us on Thursday, March 23, 2023, at the Milford House to taste four great Italian wines accompanied by Italian style small bites.

About the presenter:

Pierina Bianchini’s dream since childhood has been to become an ambassador and to travel the world. Today, that dream has evolved to be an ambassador for promoting Italian culinary traditions in the US.

In 1992, her personal journey abroad began in Maryland, USA, where she was hosted by an amazing Indian family who quickly became her second family. In 1998, she was led from International Studies into the fascinating world of the wine industry.

Since then, she visited special places and met amazing producers. They all had a common denominator: they were all different, with a unique story to tell, lots of love for their “terroir” and they were trying their best to be truth to their beliefs. Each of them had a personal journey and she wanted to be their voice, and to be part of their future journey, bringing their wines to the other side of the ocean and that is why Emotion for Passion project was born in 2015. Emotion for Passion is a good example of diversity and inclusion.

“When I drink a glass of wine, I like it only if it inspires me an EMOTION, that emotion is the reflection of the PASSION and LOVE the producer had when he made that wine,” Bianchini said.

She is a hybrid entity working six months in Italy at the wineries and six months in the U.S. with distributors and importers. She follows the wines from when they are born to when they get poured in the glass.
