Vino della Grazia – the Italian Wine Festival, 2020


$30.00 $25.00

A wine festival in Milwaukee, on Saturday, March 7, noon to 4 pm.


What a difference 25+ years makes! The Barolo Boys toured the United States for the first time in 1994, a pivotal and celebrated moment in wine history which was designed by Marc de Grazia. It was a movement, a time of experimentation and risk taking in Piemonte.

Now it’s 2020, and were going to celebrate again! Join us Vino Della de Grazia – Waterford and Marc de Grazia’s celebration of Barolo, Brunello and so many more wines across all of Italy. That’s right, this year our Italy Festival is expanding to include the entire Boot, and so much more.

But we have something extra special this year. Seven extraordinary Italian winemakers will be presenting their wines at the Festival. That is correct – the person standing next to you across the table is also the person who made the wine. Is there any better way to learn about Italian wine? I think not.

We are one of only four cities in the United States to host this festival (and no other city opens it to the general public)—so this is an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind event!

And of course, we will be tasting a lot of wine. Whether you are just starting down the path of exploring Italian wine or you already have a cellar full of Brunello from 1947, this tasting is not one you’ll want to miss. The Italy Festival is an extravagant tour through some of Italy’s most majestic wines.
