Second Wine Dinner at Zeppoli's- Spain vs.ItalyJust some of the wines that Zeppoli's offers!My second wine dinner theme at Zeppoli's was Spain and Italy, Vino Di Vino. At this wine dinner pairing we tried 13 different wines: 5 whites and 7 reds. Once again, Zeppoli's provided wonderful food and massive amounts of it! This time our food selection was a Greek salad, bread with oil, tomato and basil pizza, mozzarella sticks, BBQ meatballs, cheese and crackers, turkey wraps, and pasta peselli. This was all the food laid out before everyone got there! Better yet, when something is gone they bring out another plate!!
This is was plate full of yummy food!We started the wine pairing with white wines: Cortenova NV Prosecco DOC Treviso-Italy, Cortenova Pint Grigo DOC-Italy, AV Vinho Verde ACO-Portugal, Opera Prima NV Sparkling Moscato, and Opera Prima 2011 Chardonnay La Mancha DO-Spain. My favorite three white wines from this pairing were the AV Vinho Verde ACO-Portugal, Opera Prima NV Sparkling Moscato, and Opera Prima 2011 Chardonnay La Mancha DO-Spain. AV Vinho Verde AOC Portugal:
White wine #1- Vinho VerdeWinery Review: Spring flowers and fresh fruit essences a natural freshness to dance across your palate. For a hot summer day, you don't want an expensive rich white; you want Verde! There are few other wines that scream "summer" in the way Vinho Verde does. It seems as though the gently fizzy, wet stone-scented thing works equally well with hot dogs, raw calms, corn on the cob or any other classic foods of the season. Enjoy this at your Fourth of July barbecue, and consider it for summer picnics, shore outings and other alfresco event all the way through Labor Day.
