Perticaia Wine Dinner

On Tuesday October 27th, Centre Street Cafe would like to invite you to our very first wine dinner. We’ll celebrate the wines of Umbria by enjoying 5 offerings from Perticaia, a winery known for keeping intact the rich history and traditions of the region. That means Trebbiano with body and strength, mouthwatering Sangiovese, dark and deep Sagrantino.

These wines will be paired over 4 courses, each dish rooted in the idea of “cucina povera”, or peasant cooking, for which the region is known. Cucina Povera doesn’t mean simple for simplicity’s sake; it means a celebration of freshness and of proximity to agriculture that invites simplicity: why get fancy with a just-picked squash? Fresh herbs abound, and olive oil drizzles at every opportunity.

Blanchard’s wine director John Paul Kaminga joins us to share his enthusiasm for Perticaia wines, and Perticaia’s Boston distributor Steven Chevalier will be along to curate the pairings.
