Candlelight Wine Dinner

July 30, 8:00 pm

Celebrate the wines of Calabria at our first outdoor wine dinner on our new patio space, by candlelight. Hosted by our Sommelier, Angelo Secolo, we will be serving a 5 course Calabrian summer menu, paired with chilled whites, rose, and red wines from Ippolito 1845 Vineyards.  

Ippolito 1845 is the oldest winery in Calabria.  Vincenzo Ippolito started his mission to revive the indigenous grapes of Gaglioppo, Calabrese, and Pecorello over 160 years ago.  Surrounded by orange trees and olive groves and bordered by the Ionian Sea, it is the perfect place for a vineyard.  

 

Ippolito wines convey elegance, exclusivity, and a strong identity with their territory.  The Ippolito family believes in preserving their environment by employing sustainable farming and wine making methods. 

5-course dinner with wine pairing.

$95 per person, plus tax and gratuity

Please call (267) 886-9334 or

email info@cicalarestaurant.com to reserve.
