Our Top Sips for National Wine Day

We’re always looking for a reason to raise our glasses for a toast. If you’re looking for a reason too, mark your calendar to celebrate National Wine Day with us on Thursday, May 25th!

Red Wine Favorites

In our opinion, you can’t have a favorite Italian wine list without a Barollo on it! Our Viladora Barollo is a renowned Italian wine from the Piedmont region. With its bold and complex flavors of red fruits, leather, and spices, the sophisticated flavors makes it the perfect match for hearty Italian dishes and rich, flavorful meats like our Brasato.

During our weekly Thursday night special, the Viladora Barolo is just under $45 – a rare steal for this varietal at a restaurant!

A close second in our favorites is our Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino, a classic Italian wine from Tuscany. Sangiovese lovers will enjoy this wine’s intense aromas of red berries, floral notes, and hints of spices. The richness and elegance make it the perfect pairing for a wide range of Italian dishes, from hearty meats to aged cheeses. Pair this bottle with our house-favorite Tagliatelle Bolognese for the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity.

While Brunello di Montalcino is typically sold between $100 and $300 at most restaurants, you can give this vibrant wine a try for just $63 during our Thursday night special!

Lobster Bucatini
Our Lobster Bucatini pairs beautifully with our Ferrari Carrano Chardonnay.

White Wine Favorites

When guests say they love a full-bodied white, we always recommend to them our Ferrari Carrano Chardonnay. This bottle is everything you can imagine when it comes to a California chardonnay, with luscious notes of tropical fruits, vanilla, and oak. This wine offers a creamy mouthfeel and a long, satisfying finish. It pairs perfectly with our Lobster Bucatini, complimenting the rich, buttery flavors of the lobster and cream sauce.

Enjoy the richest, butteriest chardonnay in the house during our weekly Thursday night wine special for less than $45.

And finally, we can’t do a white wine list without mentioning the Barden Fonte White Blend. This unique and captivating wine from Santa Barbara County blends Rhone and Burgundian varieties. The harmonious balance of flavors offers notes of citrus, tropical fruits, and minerality, making it a refreshing and complex choice that you won’t find elsewhere. This wine perfectly complements the flavors of grilled fish, so pair it with the La Griglia for a dinner you won’t soon forget!

You can’t get a better deal than this bottle on our Thursday night special! Enjoy this unique California white blend for less than $40.
