Happy New Year to all! We hope you’ve enjoyed your holidays and the company of loved ones. Now, we know below freezing temperatures aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but we’re going to give you an excellent reason to bundle up, warm up the car and head down to Emilio’s. Our January wine dinner will have you feeling warm and toasty in no time!
For this dinner, we are proudly bringing you the award winning Graziano Family of Wines, specializing in classic Italian and unique old-world varietals, from Mendocino County, California. With 4 generations of winemakers in this Italian family, we invite you to join us in celebrating their 100th year of winemaking Vincenzo Graziano was born and raised in Piemonte, Italy, and was taught the art of being a winegrower by his family. Vincenzo and his wife, Angela, immigrated to the US in 1907 and first planted vineyards in Mendocino in 1918. Surviving the prohibition era through bootlegging and selling grapes to home winemakers on the east coast, now 4 generations later, they have continued to carry on the family tradition. By continuing to employ old world cellar practices and carefully choosing the perfect vineyard’s climate and soil for the grape varietals planted, the family can preserve each variety’s integrity and continue to produce these exceptional wines.
With wines this good and food this delicious, we are excited to share these pairings with you and hope you can join us!
