Winemaker Dinner featuring Sicily’s Planeta Winery

Please join us in welcoming Alessio Planeta of the famed legendary Planeta Winery of Sicily.  Pèppoli Chef Arturo Moscoso will create a seven-course tasting menu to compliment the fantastic offering of Planeta wines.

Friday, July 23, 2010


Planeta has the proud distinction of creating the winery that put Sicily on the map!

Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta began their winemaking venture in the mid-1980s at Sambuca di Sicilia, an estate the Planeta family has owned since the 1600s.The trio spent subsequent years matching the extraordinarily diverse Sicilian soils with both indigenous and international grape varieties. The result?  A family of critically-acclaimed wines that demonstrate how brilliance can be attained through the thoughtful marriage between grape variety and terroir.
