Free Wine Tasting: Aperitivo Wines
5 PM - 7 PM at CoolVines on Grove
An aperitivo is a pre-meal drink; the experience of aperitivo is a cultural ritual. Derived from the Latin aperire, the tradition of aperitivo is meant “to open” the stomach before dining. Accordingly, for centuries Italians have said cheers – cin cin – over drinks and appetizers in the early evening hours between work and dinner. A common misconception leads us to think of aperitifs solely as bitter liqueurs sipped in scant amounts, which couldn't be further from the truth. This week let's explore a few wines that will whet the appetite.
