WINERDì – A Real Culture Exchange




Winerdì is a wine series started back in September of 2009 at Ciao Vino in Varcaturo. Fabrizio Erbaggio and I decided to open up his Enoteca doors to a bilingual audience. Each Friday, we focus on a theme; Campania Reds, Campania Whites, Merlot, Sparkling Wines and Chianti are just a few of the serate that we have hosted to an appreciative crowd. The wine tastings include 4 wines, a guided informal discussion headed by my young enologist-friend Vincenzo Di Meo, and plenty of great food provided by Stefano Pagliuca, Sciardac in Bacoli,Cinzia Dalmonte and Wanda Ranieri. Special guests have included winery owners such as Manuela Piancastelli and Peppe Mancini of Terre del Principe. The Winerdi team even hosted the Hollywood Handshake Team when they were in town last month. The next Winerdì event is scheduled for January 15th-an evening devoted to Pinot Noir. There is still space available. For more info, contact andiamotrips@gmail.com or call me at 348 590 7349.
