Last Friday was Italian Night here at our Downer’s Grove store. We had four awesome Ducati motorcycles on display, great food, and of course, nearly 150 great Italian wines.
The food was delicious. We partnered with Carlucci, an Italian restaurant near our store. Carlucci set up a three course menu for attendees of our tasting so people could go across the street for dinner after the tasting. Even better, tasters could take a bottle of wine they purchased from us and enjoy it with dinner with no corkage fee.
We also featured pizza from Roundhead’s, Angelo’s, Skuddlebutts, and Barone’s. Amici Italian Deli served up cubed cheese, and Laurie Lu’s provided dessert with mini cupcakes and other sweets.
And of course, the Ducati motorcycles. These fine-tuned machines were on loan from Motor Cycle Center of Villa Park. How better to admire Italian craftsmanship than with their performance bikes? Well, there is the wine…
