5TH ANNUAL CELEBRATION OF SAGRANTINO MONTH RETURNS TO NEW YORK CITY AND CHICAGO

 

In Partnership with Eataly, Sagrantino Month Serves as the Centerpiece of Multi-Year Campaign to Support Growing Popularity of Umbria’s Signature Wines

 

The Montefalco Consortium, the entity that oversees the historic Montefalco wine producing region of Italy, announces its fifth annual Sagrantino Month to be held this November. Montefalco, a region in Umbria regarded for distinctive winemaking, will be showcasing the wines of nine producers, as well as introducing new initiatives as part of a multi-week program created to educate consumers, press and trade.

The US events will kick off on November 7th with a week of tastings and seminars, all with the theme Savoring Sagrantino: Discover Umbria’s Indigenous Varieties. Beginning on Friday, November 11th, consumer tastings will be held at two Eataly wine shop locations, the Flatiron district in New York City and in Chicago, and will continue through the first week of December. All are welcome to taste the essence of Umbria through the indigenous varieties from which winemakers produce these exemplary wines.

In addition to tastings open to the public, the promotion will include seminars for press and trade and wine-by-the-glass programs at all of Eataly’s restaurants. Eataly’s diligence in familiarizing American consumers with authentic Italian cuisine and the Montefalco Consortium’s commitment to excellence in Umbrian wines is a natural partnership for Sagrantino Month.
