For the first time, our upcoming wine dinner on July 22nd will feature both a food purveyor as well as a wine producer. We will be pairing a menu of sustainably-raised fish from our new friends at Sea To Table with the unique wines from the Famiglia Olivini vineyard in Lombardia.

Sea To Table is a family-owned seafood distributor located in Brooklyn. Started by Michael and Sean Dimin in 2006, Sea To Table is committed to building relationships with responsible, small-scale fisheries and connecting them with thriving markets in as little as a few hours. What was caught yesterday is what you see on your plate today. The menu for this dinner, crafted by Chef Baldacci, will feature only fresh fish from Sea To Table docks in Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod, and southeastern Maine. Sea To Table’s dedication to sustainability and quality align with our commitment to serving the most wholesome and fresh ingredients possible.

When it came to pairing the seafood with a worthy wine producer, the wines of Famiglia Olivini immediately came to mind. Situated in the heart of the Lugana D.O.C production area, the Olivini vineyard has made a name for itself in the Italian wine scene, both for the innovative spirit it lavishes during all phases of processing and the high quality of the wines produced. The vineyard places particular importance on respecting and preserving the unique features of the territory.

We hope you can join us for this exciting wine dinner.
