Wednesday, January 25th and Thursday, January 26th, 2017 | 7:00pm Grenache Wine Dinner | $60 per person | 5 wines paired with 5 courses | Reservations Are Required
We, at Emilio’s, hope you all have enjoyed a blessed and wonderful holiday with your loved ones. It is now 2017, and we are going to ring in the new year with a wine dinner featuring the best of the best. This January, we bring you Italy’s elite with our Italian DOCG Wine Dinner.
If you’ve ever had an Italian wine with a pink label wrapped around the cork, then you’ve delved into the wonderful world of DOCG wines. DOCG, which is the most prestigious classification for Italian wines, stands for, “Denominazione di Origine Contrallata e Garantita.” This labelling represents controlled production methods and guaranteed wine quality from within a specified region. Essentially, it is a guaranteed assurance label.
And Italy doesn’t mess around when it comes to their top wines and regions. All DOCG wines have followed strict rules and regulations and have even been analyzed and tasted by government licensed personnel before being bottled. We will proudly be bringing you 5 different DOCG wines from 4 designated regions including a menu to match beautifully with Evan Livick as acting sommelier from Bravo Wine imports.
What do Italians do when they eat? They drink wine. And what do Italians do when they drink wine? They eat. So let’s do as the Italians do this January and drink wine and eat together! It’s what we do best at Emilio’s!
