Vic Returns to The Rachael Ray Show

Vic Rallo returned to the Rachael Ray Show last week to defend his Dollar Store Cook-off Championship title against the charming CEO of Masterbuilt, John McLemore!

An Evening with Aldo Raffanelli & the Wines of Antinori

Tuesday, December 3rd at 6:30pm
$79 per person plus tax and gratuity.
Dinner, tasting and educational seminar

Join us for an intimate evening with Aldo Raffanelli and the wines of Antinori paired with delicious regional cuisine.
The Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries. Through twenty six generations, the family has always directly managed this work with courageous and, at times, innovative decisions, but always maintaining, unaltered, a fundamental respect for tradition and for the territory in which they have operated.
Today the firm is run by Marquis Piero Antinori with the support of his three daugthers, Albiera, Allegra, and Alessia, directly involved in the work of the house. Tradition, passion, and intuition have been the three driving principles which have led the Marquis Antinori firm to become a leader in Italian wine.

The Award-Winning Wines of Nino Negri with Sarah Maule

$79 per person plus tax and gratuity.
Dinner, tasting and educational seminar

“Nino Negri has confirmed itself a star of first magnitude.” – Gambero Rosso

Established in 1897, Nino Negri is the premier estate producing wine in the Valtellina DOCG in Italy’s Lombardy region. The success of Nino Negri and the greater Valtellina region is due largely to the efforts of winemaker Casimiro Maule who has worked at the estate since 1971, his entire professional life. In 2007, Casimiro was named “Winemaker of the Year” by Gambero Rosso, the authority in Italian wine.

The Legendary Wines of Marchese di Gresy, Piemonte with Jeff Chilcott

Tuesday, February 4th at 6:30pm
$79 per person plus tax and gratuity.
Dinner, tasting and educational seminar

In the 1960’s, Alberto di Grésy spent much of his time supervising the agricultural operations of the family estates where he concluded early on that he didn’t want to limit himself to selling the grapes from his vineyards to the finest wine producers in the area as was the tradition in the Langhe. In 1973 Alberto di Grésy began vinifying his own wine: the objective to produce wine with the best available technology while respecting tradition, and to transfer as much as possible of the character and personality of the terrain, vineyard site and varietal into the bottle.

The winery, recently expanded, provides the means to produce products of the highest quality, with respect to the oenological tradition from grapes grown in the various estates which di Grésy owns.
