Drink Like An Italian

by Cayenne

Join us for an exciting evening (or a few!) that will bring our community, friends, and loved ones together. This October, discover la dolce vita!  Experience a cultural exchange while enjoying good food, paired with wines originating from all over Italy.

For three nights only we will welcome Massimo Coppetti, our favorite Florentine wine expert, with over 25 years of experience in wine education.

“Because hosting and welcoming are synonymous with loving and is hands down my greatest passion.” 

Massimo will curate the perfect wines and tastings for each night. With menus by incredibile chefs from Mayors Table at The Lido House, Trenta Pizza & Cucina, and Arc Butcher and Baker, this wine dinner series will transport us to an evening in Italy. 

Here, we can learn about history, tradition, tasting techniques, and most importantly… how to drink like an Italian!


GIOVEDÌ ($100): Thursday, October 13th, Aperitivo @ The Lido House. 5PM-7PM.

Aperitivo: Derived from the Latin aperire, the tradition is meant “to open” the stomach before dining. 

L’appetito vien mangiando! Start the wine-dinner series off and join us for a delizioso Aperitivo + Vino! Thursday night you will get to experience one of our favorite cultural rituals at The Mayor’s Table Trellis. Cheers – cin cin – over drinks and appetizers and indulge in unique spritzes and wine, while learning all about the fun that can be had in the hours between work and dinner.

VENERDÌ ($200): Friday, October 14th @ Trenta Pizza & Cucina. 6PM-9PM.

Friday, begin your evening with Pizza e Bollicine. We will start our night by indulging in an aperitivo of pizzas and sparkling wines, while coming together to mingle and meet new friends. 

Next, sit down and cozy up! We are having our favorite style dinner… famiglia style! This is one of the staples of Italian dining, with the idea that this style helps to facilitate conversations and new ideas amongst friends and family. Say that’s amore over traditional dishes, coursed out with the perfect wine pairings to accompany each bite. Come as strangers and leave as family. We can’t imagine a better way to start the weekend!

SABATO ($300): Saturday, October 15th @ The Arc Bottle Shop. 6PM-9PM. 

Finalmente, Saturday evening will take place at The Arc Bottle Shop. Amongst a community table we will come together for a luxurious five-course meal curated by Noah Blom. This meal will transport you across various regions of Italy; from Liguria to Salerno to Calabria and beyond! With Italy’s diverse varietal of grapes, tonight you will surely discover wines you have never experienced before. 

Fall in love with the Italian way by enjoying carefully paired wines with exquisite courses, and even better company.
