On the Adriatic Coast for our May Al Fresco Wine Tasting!

Join us for the latest in our Al Fresco Wine Tasting Series in our Priory Hotel courtyard.  Our May event features the wines of the Domodimonti Winery of the Marches region of Italy, on the Adriatic coast.  Our wine hosts are Marco Scapagnini of Domodimonti Winery and Nick Biondi of Majestic Wines & Spirits.

The story of the Domodimonti Winery is a fascinating one.  A successful businessman and Ph.D in organic chemistry, Dr. Francisco Bellini returned from Canada to his native Marches region of Italy in the 1990's to found Domodimonti Natural   Wines.  Dr. Bellini is committed to making wines in as natural a fashion as possible, through sustainable agriculture, natural treatment of the vines, and a physical space which is designed to have as little impact as possible on the surrounding countryside.

We'll be tasting the Domodimonti Passerina (2011), Pecorino (2011), Sangiovese (2010), and Picens (2008).

As always, our Executive Chefs Pete Phillipy and Mike Henney will provide heavy hors d'oeuvres paired with each wine.  Entertainment is by the incomparable Vince Lucente.

The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  Tickets are $55.00.  Please contact the Priory's Gene Lucente if you would like to make a reservation at gene@thepriory.com.
