Join us for our Wine Education Series

Tuesdays @ 6:30 starting 3/19 through 5/21

Come take a wine-tasting journey through the hills and valleys of Italy’s wine regions and those of neighboring areas. In each of eight delicious hour-long sessions, Ben Zemmel will call on his ten years of immersive experience in enology (the science and study of wines and winemaking) to guide you through the characteristics of each region’s wines. And you’ll enjoy small bites paired with each wine.

Head to the link in our profile for our website with all the details.

Come in and have a glass of wine from our fall collection.

This excellent Nebbiolo is bold, structured and silky (not a word you usually hear with Nebbiolo). Vajra does an incredible job coaxing so much out of a hearty grape that usually needs years to sit down and mellow out. #redwine #newhavenpizza #naplitanapizza #italianfood #cocktails #bacari #alfornooldsaybrook #alfornoct
