Lovers of Italian wines will want to mark Thursday, October 27, 2022 on your calendars. That is the date that BTG Wine Bar will host a special wine pairing dinner featuring the wines of Tenuta Sant’Antonio, an excellent winery based in Veneto, Italy. One of the winery owners, Armando Castagnedi, will be on hand to talk to guests about the wines being offered during the four-course wine dinner.
The Tenuta Sant’Antonio wines being poured during the dinner include “Scaia” Blanco, “Scaia” Corvina, “Monti Garbi” Valpolicella Ripasso, and Castagnedi Selection Amarone. Tenuta Sant’Antonio Valpolicellas are made from 100% estate-grown fruit from the Illasi Valley and Monti Garbi.
Armando Castagnedi and his three brothers – Tiziano, Paolo, and Massimo – the sons of winegrower Antonio Castagnedi, purchased 75 acres of vineyards to add to the 50 acres left to them by their father to create Tenuta Sant’Antonio family winery.
According to the winery, “The Castagnedi brothers devote meticulous attention to their high-density, low-yield vineyards to provide grapes of such exceptional quality that they require minimal intervention during winemaking. At harvest time, the grapes for Amarone are harvested on a first pass through the vineyards, and those for the regular Valpolicella are harvested on the second pass. In this way, the basic Valpolicella gets a portion of the best grapes and is an exceptional value for the price.”
The Tenuta Sant’Antonio wine dinner at BTG begins at 7:00 p.m. The cost per person is $50 for food and $50 for the wine pairings ($100 pp.). Seating is very limited. Call 801-359-2814 for reservations.
