Sips with Francesco Zonin at Made in Italy Gourmet

It doesn’t get any better than a private sit-down wine tasting hosted by the man himself, Francesco Zonin paired with the most delicious bites by Made in Italy Gourmet. Ahhh, a taste of Italy in Miami…what a beautiful combination.

We were delighted to share the same space with Francesco Zonin, Vice President of Zonin, Italy’s largest privately family owned vineyard and winemaking complex along with co-owners Pietro Morelli and Francesco Belcaro of the new Made in Italy Gourmet located in Miami’s very own Wynwood area.

FullSizeRender-3Greeted with one of our favorites, Zonin Prosecco, we mixed and mingled with other invited VIP attendees while we admired the beautiful decor of Made in Italy Gourmet. As the evening proceeded, Francesco introduced and informed us about several different wines made by Zonin that included Zonin Prosecco, Masseria Altemura Fiano, Masseria Altemura Negroamaro, and Masseria Altemura Sasseo. Each wine was perfectly paired with delicious Italian appetizers by Made in Italy Gourmet that included: Cherry tomatoes with buffalo mozzarella skewer, Fregula (typical pasta from Sardinia made with semolina dough) served as salad with mixed vegetables, Cold Cuts (porchetta, mortadella, prosciutto cotto, caciotta), fontina cheese, and a mix of focaccias stuffed with buffalo mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes spread, ricotta cheese, and artichokes spread.

The night was an amazing one to celebrate and cheers to good Italian wines and delicious food. Plans are already in the making for a Big Mouth Girlz night out at Made in Italy Gourmet to enjoy another taste of Italy in Miami. Join us! Taste! Live! Share!
