Featured wines included Odinstal Riesling Sekt, D’Alfonso del Sordo “Catapanus” Bombino Bianco 2015, Chateau de Lancyre Rose, Domaine Guillot Broux “Beaumont,” and Hillinger Muskat Ottonel. On July 25, Chef Antonio Franco of Basta Restaurant prepared oysters served with cucumbers, along with bruschetta and grilled ribeye courses and strawberry tart for dessert. Featured wines included Sektkellerei Ohlig Brut Weisse, Chateau Lafont Menaut Blanc, Rojac Malvasia, Camerano Dolcetto and San Venanzio Prosecco. The wines were paired via The Wine Bros. and The Savory Grape. Narragansett Beer also featured Bancroft Up or Down Ale, Summertime Citra Ale and Lovecraft The Temple Sticke Altbier during both dinners.
