La Vendemmia is Ottawa’s annual celebration of Italian wine and food. We’re thrilled to be working on this series of events once again this year and we’ve just released the 2009 calendar which you can view online here. Here are some of this year’s highlights:
Guest Chef Mario Pingue joins us for our headlining event, a cooking demonstration and dinner. Known best for his artisan charcuterie products, including melt-in-your-mouth prosciutto produced right here in Ontario, we think it rivals some of the best we’ve tasted from Italy and we invite you to taste for yourself. Mario is also a talented chef, who will be preparing a delectable menu using some of his Niagara Specialties products on Thursday September 17th at Divino Wine Studio.
Atelier Restaurant, one of Ottawa’s most talked-about and our only “tasting menu only” restaurants, is hosting a special tasting menu inspired by classic Italian Flavours. To make things even more interesting, each of the 12 courses will be paired with a variety of Italian sparkling wines. Join us for this tasty Vendemmia kick-off on Monday September 14th.
The Signature Grape Stomp relay is your chance to stomp grapes and raise money for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation 11am-2pm Sunday September 20th. Round up a team of 4 people and enter online.
Taste Little Italy is our signature closing event and offers your best opportunity to taste the wide range of delicious treats available on Preston Street. Set up wine and food show style, we can’t imagine a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Taste Little Italy takes place on Sunday September 20th at Sala San Marco and features restaurants from Preston Street, Italian wine samples, and your ticket also includes admission to the Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar Showcase that takes place simultaneously next door at Divino Wine Studio.
