Mastroberardino Wine Dinner
September 13th, a Tuesday @ 6pm
$75 a head
Mastroberardino is a very important winery in the Campania region of Italy. It has been family owned for 11 generations and dominates the production of Campania wine with grapes such as the Aglianico(red) and other ancient grape varieties like Fiano and Greco(both white).
The winery is also behind the Villa dei Misteri project at Pompeii that is recreating the wines of the ancient Roman city by replanting vineyards that were destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 using the same ancient grape varieties, viticulture and winemaking techniques of that period. Although these wines will not be at the dinner, here is a link to a slide show of those vineyards.
Recess is very excited to showcase the wines of Mastroberardino and to welcome the Export Manager, Lucrezia Bencivenga. We look forward to seeing you on this special occasion. Please call to make a reservation for this dinner.
