Rocco Potami, the chef and owner of Rocco’s Italian Grille & Bar in Winter Park, is hosting a Castello di Querceto wine dinner on Tuesday, July 9, and it’s looking to be the dinner deal of the summer.
The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m.with a welcome sparkler of Rotari Brut 2014 and will be followed by a five course dinner, each paired with a wine from Castello di Querceto's portfolio. And the cost is $85 plus tax and gratuity.
If you know the quality of Potami’s food — and you should — you’ll know that that’s an amazing value, even without the wines. His Veal & Beef Ravioli in a white truffle sauce, which happens to be the second course, is enough to get me to sign on. But there’s plenty more good stuff on the menu. I got a sneak peek of it and I’ll share it with you below.
To reserve your space for the dinner, call the restaurant at 407-644-7770. Seating is limited, so don’t wait too long on this one. Rocco’s Italian Grille & Bar is at 400 S. Orlando Ave., Winter Park.
Here’s the menu:
