Aventine Hill participated in an outdoor fall wine tasting sponsored by Ninety 9 Bottles of Westport. The tasting event was held on September 24 at the bucolic Fodor Farms in Norwalk. Aventine Hill Sales Director David Squires, along with Arlene Scanlan, wine aficionado, poured six wines from Italy and France, selected for the season and the setting. More than 150 people attended the event. A portion of the proceeds generated by Ninety 9 Bottles was donated to Soundbridge, a regional program that provides expertise and technology to promote listening and speaking in children with hearing loss.
On November 3, Aventine Hill will team up with Paci Restaurant in Southport, CT and Liquor Locker in Westport to host a Fall Wine Dinner. The team at Paci have created a pairing menu for the following wines: 2015 Castel Sallegg Pinot Bianco, the 2014 Isidoro Polencic Chardonnay, the 2014 Tenuta Giustini Negroamaro, the 2014 Cantine Lupo Merlot ‘Primolupo’, 2012 Casa Emma Chianti Classico ‘Vignalparco’, and 2010 Croce di Mezzo Brunello di Montalcino.
