Description
 
Valle d’Aosta is commonly referred to as the ‘Roof of Italy.’ Situated in the Western Alps, the northwestern region of Italy borders France and Switzerland and is known for the iconic, snow capped-peaks of the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc, ski resorts and medieval castles. While we’re familiar with Italian food in general, the cuisine of Valle d’Aosta is not as recognized to us as that of Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna and Abruzzo, to name a few. There’s a LOT to love, but don’t take our word for it! Join Mariel Wega of wine importer/distributor Skurnik Wines and Gary Burner of social and supper club Moonfish for a wine pairing dinner through the Aosta Valley: seupa à la Vapelenentse (rye cabbage and fontina soup), paired with Petite Arvine Valle d'Aoste; gnocchi alla bava (buckwheat gnocchi with fontina), paired with Pinot Gris Vallee d'Aoste; costoletta alla Valdostana (breaded veal cutlet, jambon, parmesan), paired with Nus Valle d'Aoste; “Montblanc" (chestnut and pear tart); and an after-dinner nightcap of Distilleria Alpe, Amer du Val d'Aoste.
