Greek Wine Dinner.jpg

Greetings Fellow Wine Lovers!

     For this Aprils wine dinner, we are heading to the beautiful Mediterranean to experience a taste of Greece.  The Greeks have been making wine for over 4000 years, so we decided its about time we place them in the spotlight!  From the native Greek varietals to the inspired menu, we are sure your palate will be pleased!

     Stunning islands, domed white-washed houses set against the bluest waters, and ancient ruins are all images that come to mind when we think of Greece, but more significantly, many of the ideas that have flourished in the western world were born in ancient Greece.  The ancient Greeks tried to explain the world through the laws of nature, making valuable discoveries in math and science, developing democracy, and of course, valuing both beauty and creativity.  But what did they always have in hand when they gathered for intellectual conversation in an attempt to unearth these truths?  Wine, of course!  Yes, it all makes sense now.  Perhaps, our dinners are just a gathering of intellectual genius accompanied by food and wine!

     Well, we dont know if well uncover any of lifes secrets or make any scientific breakthroughs at our April Wine Dinner, but one thing is certain; well gather around the table, have a great time and allow the conversation and the wine to flow!  We hope you can join us.

    

Sincerely,

Ashley Esposito, Manager

Emilio Amato, Owner
