Felice Anno Nuovo!

Happy New Year to all our friends. I truly cannot believe we’ve said goodbye to another decade, but I hope that 2020 will be the best year yet for each of you.

This month’s Taste & Learn will be a celebration of the New Year and of winter’s most comforting wines, perfect to enjoy during our coldest month of the year. Themed as “Winter Gems for a Happy 2020,” the event will take place on Jan. 25 at 5 p.m. and will feature a tour of Italian wineries from Le Marche (Casal di Serra), Veneto (Allegrini) and—my favorite region—Piemonte (Renato Ratti).


As always, Ferraro’s award-winning chef has prepared seasonal dishes to accompany each wine perfectly. The full menu follows:

Umani Ronchi Verdicchio Casal di Serra, 2018
Stoccafisso alla Anconetana
Poached Norwegian stockfish, potato sauce, tomato soffritto, rosemary

Allegrini Valpolicella, 2017
Quail stuffed with polenta, sautéed escarole, Monte Veronese cheese
