Pèpe took Italian cuisine to another level with the conception of Ristorante Pèppoli, a world-class Italian restaurant located at the Inn at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach. The restaurant is a partnership along with Piero Antinori, Italy’s most famous winemaker and the Pebble Beach Company, and is named after the Pèppoli Vineyard in Tuscany (owned by Antinori), and was opened in 2000.
Pèppoli at Pebble Beach captures the look and feel of dining in a Tuscan villa, albeit one overlooking the famous golf links and the Pacific Ocean. Rich earth tones, tapestry-style awnings and Tuscan ceramics grace the restaurant. One entire wall serves to showcase the wines, while another feature is a terracotta grill and rotisserie.
The menu focuses on the centuries-old traditions of culture & cuisine of the Antinori family, Florence and the Tuscan countryside and pairs perfectly with the wines from the estates of Antinori and other great Italian wine producers.
The wine list is world-class, and features the finest collection of Antinori wines available outside of Italy, including multiple vintages of Tignanello, Solaia and Guado al Tasso.
Seasonal food and wine “festas” are planned throughout the year with personal appearances by Marchese Piero Antinori, his three daughters, winemakers and chefs.
