Amazing Holiday Wine Tasting Hosted at Little Italy Along with Toy Drive
Little Italy is hosting their Annual amazing Holiday Wine Tasting happening Wednesday, November 7th from 6pm-9pm. This year, they will also be hosting a toy drive during the event. Guests who bring a new, unwrapped toy will receive a raffle ticket to win some pretty snazzy wine gifts.
Little Italy Restaurant and Pizzeria located at 824 Afterglow St., San Antonio, TX 78216 will be hosting their annual holiday wine tasting in their private dining room, The Big Apple. This year, they’ve teamed up with the San Antonio Northside Lions to host a toy drive with donations going to Any Baby Can of San Antonio & San Antonio Toys for Tots.
Each year, Little Italy, hosts a unique wine tasting featuring 25-30 wine varieties from around the world. The tasting is held in The Big Apple, the restaurant’s private dining room, which has recently been updates with a new interior. Upon arrival, guests receive a tasting glass and list of each wine so they can easily track what they have already sampled. Wine stations are positioned throughout the room so guests can freely sample, and learn about the wine and vineyards from educated representatives positioned at each station.
Each wine is carefully chosen by Marisa Visocaro, Little Italy’s wine expert and co-owner of the restaurant. She spends nearly a month prior to the wine tasting each year, meeting with representatives from around the country to find the perfect wines she knows her customers will love. Then based on flavor profile, she chooses her top 25-30 favorites to be featured in the tasting.
At the conclusion of the wine tasting, guests will have an opportunity to purchase any of the wines they sampled for their home collection. This is a great opportunity to get your holiday wine shopping done, or even pick up a few gifts for family and friends! Guests who order six or more bottles of wine will receive 10% off their wine purchase.
Additionally, this year Little Italy’s owners will be hosting a toy drive. Any guest who brings a new, unopened toy will receive a raffle ticket. Prizes in the raffle include several high end bottles of wine ranging from $75-$200 in value, along with a few fully stocked wine baskets values at $100+.
The cost to participate in the wine tasting is $25 per person pre-sale, and $30 per person at the door. Admission includes wine samples and light appetizers. To learn more information, or to purchase tickets, please click here: http://ow.ly/hhOs30mi3rd
