Antinori Winemaker Dinner – Sunday, May 17th.

Bis on Main is happy to announce our first wine maker dinner of 2015 on the evening of Sunday, May 17th at 5.30pm, featuring the wines of Italy’s Marchese Antinori, family owned since the fourteenth century and one of Italy’s largest and most prominent producers.  The dinner will be hosted by Antinori’s US  Brand Ambassador, Mr. Niccolo Maltinti.

Mr. Maltinti was born and educated in Florence, and now resides in NYC and has represented the Antinori family since 2011.  Niccolo will lead us through 7 fabulous wines from the Antinori family of properties, including the 2006 Prunotto Bric Turot Barbaresco, and two of Antinori’s premium Super Tuscans, Tignanello and Guado al Tasso.  A generous sampling of these wines will be served alongside a six course dinner by our Chef Liam Spence.

In addition to a wonderful dinner with great wine, our guests will have the opportunity to purchase wines from the Antinori portfolio at special one night only pricing!  Along with the wines being served at the dinner, we will also have a limited offering of Antinori’s 2006 Solaia, a 97 point gem and called by some critics the finest wine in the world.  Many other wines from Antinori will be available for purchase including Col Solare, their collaboration with Woodinville’s Chateau Ste. Michelle and Antica, the Antinori family’s Napa property.

Price per person will be $135 plus tax and gratuity.  Check this space or call the restaurant at 425-455-2033 for more details and reservations.
