Marc de Grazia Wine Dinner - Monday, October 18th

Monday, October 18th ~ 7 p.m.

North Charles Fine Wines invites you to a wine dinner at Sotto Sopra Restaurant. Wines will be presented by guest speaker Todd Ruby of Marc de Grazia.

Marc de Grazia Selections has been promoting fine Italian wines since 1980. Represented are over eighty small estates from fourteen Italian wine regions with an emphasis on significant "terroir" and a preference for autochthonous varietals: Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Aglianico, Fiano, Greco, Verdicchio, Garganega, Nero d'Avola, to name a few. The company's efforts are by no means limited to exporting and marketing, but from the beginning the founder, Marco de Grazia, has worked closely with the "vignerons" in all phases of production.

As a result, the reciprocal care and dedication of the producers in the vineyards and cellars has over the years proferred a steady growth in quality.

The estates part of the portfolio are imported world-wide and may be found throughout Western and Eastern Europe, North America, Australia as well as Japan, Hong Kong, South-East Asia, Korea, Taiwan, Israel, Puerto Rico, Brazil and PerĂ¹.
