Masi-agricolaI am very pleased to announce that the team at Max a Mia in Avon, will be hosting a very special Italian wine and food pairing dinner with not one, but two great personalities from Italy.  On tour across the United States, the two Nozzole-wine-logoguests are making a stop over in Avon to give you and our other guests some great insights into their respective wineries and regions.  Raffaele Boscaini, of Masi Winery in the Veneto will be on hand, as well as Giovani Folonari, who along with his brother, is one of the great winery owners of Tuscany, with such wineries as Nozzole, Campo al Mare and Cabreo.  This promises to be great evening for Italian wine lovers.  Menu prepared by Executive Chef David Stickney of Max a Mia.  See the menu below…
