Avignonesi salutes the United States on July 4, 2012 with a special dinner event and four-course meal paired with our finest wines, including a rare tasting of Avignonesi Vin Santo di Montepulciano DOC sweet wine. We've organized this event because we want to recognize our clients in the United States who have, over time, come to visit us at Le Capezzine and who continue to purchase our wines once they get home. Our client base is valuable to us: they review us on Trip Advisor; they send us photographs, collages and thank you notes; they stay in touch.
And we'll be celebrating Independence Day with earnest pleasure. We love evening dinner parties but usually are only open during the daytime hours. The Independence Day event will let us share the beauty of our winery (there will be an evening tour at 6:30) and highlight our cuisine with a Tuscan interpretation of American classics created by chef Luca and paired with the very best of our best wines:
Chicken Salad with Thyme, Apple and Pine Nuts with Balsamic vinaigrette
Il Marzocco Chardonnay Cortona DOC
Gragnano Pasta Gratin with Summer Vegetables from our garden and cheeses
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG
Prime Chianina Beef Burger with homemade bread, delicately fried onions from our garden, tomatoes, Pecorino sheep milk cheese and potato slivers
Desiderio Merlot Cortona DOC
