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 Tuesday, February 28, 2023, at the Milford House to taste four great Italian wines accompanied by Italian style small bites.

About the presenter:

Ross Tefteller has been in the wine industry for well over twenty years, starting at a mom & pop liquor store in Galveston back when white Zinfandel was all the rage. After working in both retail and restaurants, all the while continuing his wine studies through various entities, he decided to take the plunge into the import and distribution side of the industry ten years ago. Now he finds himself the Portfolio Manager and Sales Director of a wonderful book of boutique, artisan wines from primarily the old world with a little smattering of those from the new. He believes wine is a reflection of the place from where it was made, a perfect semblance of terroir and the stewardship of the winemaker. A thing of great beauty in the right hands. He has been lucky enough in life to travel the vineyards throughout the world and he enjoys sharing his experiences and spreading the gospel of wine.
