New York, NY (PRWEB) May 03, 2011
Soave wines will be featured for the entire month of May at Eataly, New York’s mecca for Italian cuisine. Soave seminars in Eataly’s ‘La Scuola,’ wine pairings in all of Eataly’s restaurants, a Soave Bar in La Piazza, tastings in Eataly Vino and a photo exhibit of the Soave area by renowned Italian fashion photographer Gio Mantonara are all part of the festivities as Eataly celebrates Italy’s favorite white wine.
“We are excited to showcase many of our best Soaves at Eataly, which has become the center of Italian food and wine in America,” said Arturo Stocchetti, president of the Soave Consortium. “And May is the perfect timing for Soave Month. Our wines go great with summer picnics, backyard barbecues and fresh, light summer cuisine.”
“Eataly is happy to host ‘Soave Month’ and introduce more Americans to these delicious white wines from the Veneto,” said Nicola Farinetti who manages the Eataly location in New York. “A glass of Soave is the perfect way to welcome the warm spring and summer months in New York.”
The Soave seminars in La Scuola will be held May 3rd and May 5th. There will be free Soave wine tastings in Eataly Vino every Friday and Saturday throughout the month and the photo exhibit of stylized black and white shots of the Soave region, including the vineyards and the historic Soave castle, will be on view throughout Eataly for the entire month. A rotation of up to five Soave wines will also be served by-the-glass in all Eataly restaurants and in La Piazza at the Soave Bar each week.
