Celebration of Italy Wine Dinner

  • Indaco 526 King St Charleston, SC, 29403 United States (map)

Indaco will host Winemaker Dr. Francesca Bernicchi, production manager at Castello Di Cobara Winery in Italy for a special “Celebration to Italy” dinner on Wednesday, November 12. Oenologist, Dr. Bernicchi, a female winemaker in a traditionally male-dominated industry, will be at the dinner to talk about the wines of Castello Di Cobara. Situated on a hillside near the Lake of Cobara in central Italy, the winery includes multiple vineyards at diverse elevations, providing for a variety of soil compositions and microclimates that make for numerous distinct wines. Chef Michael Perez, who recently returned from an extended research trip to Italy, will take inspiration for the trip to create this special menu.

Starting at 6:30 p.m., the five-course seated dinner will be paired with Costello Di Cobara wines beginning with a reception featuring the Orvieto Classico Superiore 2013, followed by:

• Wahoo crudo, citrus mignonette, micro basil, fried fingerling chips with Orvieto Classico Superiore 2013
• Pizzoccheri, porcini, cabbage, truffle butter, pecorino romano with Orzaluma 2012
• Flat Iron cooked on coals, rapini, salsa verde with Lago Di Corbara Blend 2012
• Whole suckling pig, kale crema, fingerling potatoes, cippolini onions with Lago Di Corbara Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
• Assorted desserts for the table

Tickets are $75 per person plus tax, gratuity, and fees (total $106.86 all inclusive).
