Sicilian Wine Dinner Photos
Buon Appetito, indeed!
The next best thing to dinner at a Sicilian grandmother’s house? Our six-course wine dinner featuring the classic cuisine and wines of Sicily. The windows of the Garden Room were open, and the lanterns swayed inthe breeze. the sunlight was still streaming in. What an amazing day to share a meal together! We enjoyed six courses of amazing Sicilian food, created by Execitive Chef Scott Weaver, Head Chef Jorge Ortega, and the rest of our wonderful Elephants staff. Nick Doughty led us through each wine, telling stories of Sicily, and introducing dinner guests to the varied wines and winemaking methods from this region.
