We romanticize Italy at the store to a point of obsession, but we sometimes forget how fragile a land Italy is. Italy has my heart, our heart, the largest wall for wine at the shop and many of our favorite cheeses and grocery products. We are leading a Central Italian tasting this Friday to honor the victims, towns and communities devastated by the massive earthquake on August 24th.
You would never think that in the serene, picturesque towns of Amatrice, Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto such disaster would strike and so many would suffer from this terrible tragedy. The earthquake directly impacted four regions of Central Italy including Abruzzo, Lazio, Umbria and Le Marche, and the loses within these communities are felt throughout all of Italy and the world. To honor this wonderful country, we are showing the below wines this Friday from 5-7:30pm. Please come by, have a taste, and toast Italia!
