Join us to welcome winemaker Carlo and his wife, Michela, to the wine stores this weekend from their home in the Veneto in Italy. Carlo will be pouring his Entusiasmo di Palazzetto Ardi 2007 in Manhattan on Friday, February 19 from 5-7pm and in Brooklyn on Saturday, February 20 from 5-7pm. Carlo farms organically and takes impeccable care of his vineyards, which are just adjacent to his house. If you were lucky enough to bask in his sunny, optimistic personality last year, you know why we look forward to his visit every year.
Carlo and Michela are loving their visit to Brooklyn and have already visited local shops like Greenlight Books (where they picked up a copy of Food Rules by Michael Pollan) and Provisions. On Thursday Carlo has been invited to present the 2006 and 2007 vintages of his wines at the Yale club. After that he was interested in indulging his passion for kites . . . the only kite store we know in Manhattan has closed, though. Anyone know anything about kites?
