What are wine dinners?

As each new season arrives, we organize special wine dinners that focus on local produce and seasonal Italian culinary traditions. These dinners involve a five-course meal designed by Chef Baldacci to pair with five different wines from a particular producer or region.

Please join our mailing list below to be notified about these seasonal dinners in the future.


Please join us for our next wine dinner as we welcome Giada Codecasa owner of Azienda Agricola Ca' Nova Winery in Piemonte. Her wines have been featured in some of our most memorable wine dinners in the past, so it is a great honor to have her with us for this dinner.

Ca' Nova is nestled in the heart of Upper Piemonte, at the foot of the formidable Monte Rosa, the second highest peak in the Alps. Operating three distinct vineyards, Ca' Nova creates a variety of wines that showcase the full range of possibilities from the region's ancient terroir of glacial soil. They grow only indigenous Piemontese varietals, harvest by hand, and vinify their wines in a state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly facility.

For this dinner, Chef Baldacci has created a wonderful five course menu to pair with these incredible wines. 

We hope you can make it!
