Ariccia Hosting Nationally Renowned Wine Maker for First Alabama Wine Dinner

Ariccia Cucina will host nationally renowned winery Small Vines for its first Alabama wine dinner on Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2019, at 6 p.m.

The Sonoma County, Calif.-based winery, known for its Pinot Noir, has hosted wine dinners at some of the finest restaurants in the U.S., including James Beard Foundation “Outstanding Restaurant” winner The French Laundry, and uber-exclusive, San Francisco-based Lazy Bear. This will be their first wine dinner in Alabama.

The evening will include a reception and 4-course “walkabout” dinner, each course planned to pair perfectly with the Small Vines wines selected for the evening. Guests will enjoy lively conversation with the winery owners on the Ariccia patio.

“We are thrilled to host Small Vines for their first wine dinner in Alabama,” said The Hotel at Auburn University Managing Director, Hans van der Reijden. “This is a phenomenal winery with exceptional wines, and we’re looking forward to not only introducing our guests to them, but introducing them to this great community.”

Accolades for Small Vines are numerous. The vineyard and its wines have been featured in The Somm Journal, Wine & Spirits Magazine, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Wine Spectator Magazine, MarthaStewart.com, Fortune Magazine, Sunset Magazine, and many others.

Wine pairings for the evening include:
• Small Vines 2017 Russian River Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir
• Small Vines 2016 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
• Small Vines 2015 TBH Vineyard Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
• Small Vines 2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
