Settled along the Adriatic Mediterranean and the Sibilini Mountains, Le Marche and Abruzzo are where some of Italy's BEST KEPT SECRETS are found! Often in the shadow of neighboring Tuscany and Campania to the south, these coastal regions are home to sumptuous blends of Montepulciano and Sangiovese, as well as one of Italy's most intriguing whites: Verdicchio. Join me on an journey through 8 distinct wines representing the best of both regions. We will dig into the appellations of Jesi, Matelica, Conero, Piceno, and the Abruzzese coast... all served alongside a light spread of Antipasto and a special surprise digestif!! Come, learn why Marche and Abruzzo are the go-to regions for value wines of quality and typicity.


I will be serving a collection of wines form both Marche and Abruzzo, including but not limited to Verdiccho from Matelica and Jesi, Trebbiano, Sangiovese, Montepulciano and one of the finest digestivo I have had the pleasure of serving.
