We are excited to announce a fantastic opportunity to sample Sicily by trying some of its highest quality wines paired with authentic Sicilian cuisine!
On Tuesday, August 18, Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria is hosting the Valle Dell’Acate Winery, located in the Ragusa province of southern Sicily. Founded in the late 19th century, Giuseppe Jacono embraced the long-lasting reputation of the Vittoria region in crafting some of the best wines in the world. Since then, the Jacono and Ferreri families have carried on the legacy of excellence, striving to create world-class wines to be enjoyed by all looking for well-crafted wines.
In order to complement the craft and quality of these artisan wines, Katie has created an authentic five-course Sicilian menu to host Valle Dell’Acate.
Wine- Bidini Insolia 2014
Panelle + Eggplant Caponata
Wine- Valle dell'Acate 'Il Moro' Nero d'Avola 2010

Combining Sicilian cuisine and wines has never been so easy here in the Midwest. Colleen McKendrick, international sales representative with Valle Dell’Acate, will be attending as special guest at this exciting event, along with Alexis Thomas, representative from A. Bommarito Wines in Brentwood.
