New Zealand and Italian Holiday Wine Pairing – Wine TV
Join Wine Channel TV, winechanneltv.tv with Sip New Zealand Holiday Wine Pairing featuring Spy Valley Wines. Wine lifestyle host Jessica Altieri gets together with Chef John Coletta of Quartino Ristorante & Wine Bar with fun and delicious pairings for the holidays.
Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a classic Wairau Valley style wine with mouth-filling body, strong, ripe, passion-fruit-like flavors and a touch of complexity from ‘a portion’ of barrel fermentation. Generous, smooth wine, drinking well from the start. The silken texture flows through a rich mid palate and clean finish. Predominantly ripe tropical fruit flavours with subtlemineral and savoury influences.
Chef John Coletta from Quartino prepares a special octopus and escarole dish to bring together a unique New Zealand and Italian holiday wine pairing.
Quartino is a bustling downtown Chicago restaurant and wine bar noted for its distinctive Italian small- plates menu, vintage decor, and attentive, personable service staff.
Chef and partner, John Coletta, has developed a menu featuring Italy’s regional specialties including artisanal salumi, Neapolitan thin-crust pizza, house-made pasta, and seasonal dishes.Menu items, served in moderate portions and meant to be shared, are perfect for adventurous diners ready for a unique experience.
