Aperitivo Italiano – Exploring “Italian Mountain Wines”
Summertime Fun from High Altitude Vineyards
What is the meaning of “Aperitivo Italiano”? An aperitivo (or apéritif) is often described as being similar to the American happy hour, but in reality, it’s much more than that. An Aperitivo is joyous and mood-lifting, it relaxes you after a day of work or prepares you for the night to come. Aperitivo, with its cheerful yet elegant nature, is a staple in Italy and has been getting more and more appreciated around the world.
Join us on Tuesday, June 27, 2023 at 7 p.m. at the Milford House to taste four great Italian Mountain Wines accompanied by Italian style small bites.
