Join Swirl Wine Bar and Market at the American Italian Cultural Center for a tasting of wines from Sicily. From the volcanic soils of Mount Etna to the dry, arid terroir of Vittoria and the chalky slopes of Menfi, Sicily offers an amazing array of indigenous varietals that thrive in the diverse microclimates across the island. Grapes such as Nerello Mascalese, Grillo, Caricante, Frappatto, Cataratto and Nero D’Avola are the source of Sicily’s unique and intriguing wines giving them a distinct character not replicated anywhere in the world.
Tonight we’ll taste 6 wines from various producers highlighting different regions, styles and grape varietals of the island. And since an Italian wine experience is not complete without food, we will offer a selection of Italian meats and cheeses to pair with the wines. The tasting is $35 and members receive a 10% discount.

Refund Policy: Refunds will be given up to one week before each dinner. Requests must be submitted by email to questions@americanitalianculturalcenter.com.

Celebrate the Italian holiday, Ferragosto with the American Italian Cultural Center. Join us for an evening of food, friends, and fun!

Ferragosto is a public holiday celebrated annually on August 15 in Italy which coincides with the Assumption of Mary. The celebration however, pre-dates the Catholic church and actually dates back to the Emperor Augustus in 18 B.C. The name “Ferragosto” comes from the Latin “Feriae Augusti” – the festivals of Augustus. The first Feriae Augusti probably celebrated a military victory, but became a day of relaxation after planting and harvesting. Today, Ferragosto is the culmination of summer vacation. Italians travel to beaches or mountains to escape the heat of the city.
