Thursday, June 27th: Vineka Wine Dinner

 

Celebrate the summer solstice, the official start of summer, by immersing yourself in the food and wine of Puglia. While Abruzzo is our second home and the place that has captured our hearts, Puglia is our escape: the brilliant blue of the Adriatic, ancient, twisted olive trees inside low walls of calcareous rock, the whitewashed towns of the Salento, tangled warrens where Greek, Roman, and Arab cultures and influences so seamlessly mix, that one seems to be in a separate country. Chef Wood's menu celebrates the region, paired with Pugliese varietals selected by Sommelier O'Brien. The dinner consists of 4 courses and 5 (optional) wine pairings from Vineka, via DiLisi Imports.

Antipasti
-Sardine "tielle": black olives, olives, peperoncini, spinach, charred spring onion

Primi 
-Hand-cut "loane" (flour & water linguine): fava beans, razor clams, lemon, oregano
