    SIPPING SORIEE ~ TOUR DE MEDITERRANEAN

    Enjoy exquisite wine, prefectly apired appetizers and live music on Historic Main Street's premiere patio at Grappa. The Sipping Soiree will feature 18 different wines from Italy, Spain and Portugal, accompanied by as assortement of appetizers and food stations representing the region's finest cuisine.

Nestled at the top of Historic Main Street, every detail of a rustic. Italian country farmhouse give Grappa its romantic atmosphere, down to the terrazzo tile, rough sewn wooden beams, and grapevine motif. 

Nothing could be more foreign to the American palate than grappa, the Northern Italian brandy distilled from the grape skins, stems,  and seeds left over from winemaking (what the French produce as marc).  By tradition, a poor man's drink, grappa can pistol-whip the palate of the neophyte.  Rustic, often fiery, it smells of hay, Earth and God knows what else. 

Today, top winemakers and distillers from all over Italy artfully craft their grappas, often distilling them from a single grape variety, or even a single variety from a single designated vineyard.  Some are aged in wood anywhere from six months to a year.  The result is a smoother, more insinuating product that can be downright elegant, while still retaining the spirit's primary characteristics.  Grappa has an intensity, a pristine quality, and an underlying simplicity.  Grappa is strong, but it leaves the taste buds refreshed.
