Wednesday, July 27th and Thursday, July 28, 2016 | 7:00pm Alpine Wine Dinner | $60 per person | 5 wines paired with 5 courses | Reservations Are Required
The hills are alive with the taste of vino this July at Emilio’s! We are taking you all the way to the Alps to experience the wines of Austria, Switzerland and the Alto -Adige of Italy. These three countries are nestled closely together and share one significant thing in common–besides the Alps, of course–great wine!
This wine dinner was inspired by a recent trip Denise Wright of Lewis Creek Market took to Austria with Brian Fairtile of Siema Wines. Their incredible trip confirmed that there are amazing wines coming out this region and than an Alpine dinner at Emilio’s is a must! The 5 wine estates we have chosen to showcase at this dinner are all at the top of their game in their respective regions. There is so much we could tell you to introduce you to these wineries, but to keep it brief, we are bringing you family owned and operated vineyards, a wine estate that was founded in 1810, one of the best (if not the best)-run bio-dynamic organic wine estates in the world and wine from one of the most talented and accomplished enologists in Austria.
At Emilio’s, we are always looking to bring you a new unique experience with food and wine, as we love the challenge of working with new wines, growing regions and especially creating the food pairings! We hope you will join us and share in the fun at our July wine dinner!
