Local Event Premier Host
For over 20 years, Porto Vino Imports has been traveling throughout Italy to create a collection of terroir-driven wines, focusing primarily on small farmers who practice organic and in many cases, natural viticulture from emerging growing areas.
Italy is a peninsula of nooks and crannies with an incredible range of biodiversity in its grape varieties and soils. Porto Vino's seeks out terroir-driven wines, the "difficult ones" that make amazing wines from the middle of nowhere, and those that give new perspectives on grape varieties and growing areas, some familiar some new to us.
Crossroads Coffee's mission is to provide great-tasting coffee and baked goods (with a focus on vegan &GF) with a smile whilst being eco-friendly and affordable. Born from the minds of two young women, crossroads. wants to bring coffee back to the basics with a twist. Not only will you be able to grab a standard cup of coffee, but you can also explore a range of drinks for the more adventurous coffee/tea connoisseur that you wouldn’t find at just any old shop.
Two companies that share similar business philosophies with their focus on the environment, sustainability, organic farming practices, and all-around support of other local producers and artists are amazing! I believe that the pairing of these two businesses and people in itself will be phenomenal.
During this class, we are partnering up with Porto Vino Imports and Housatonic Wine Company to showcase a world of Italian sparkling wines from the regions of Veneto & Emilia-Romagna while our friends from Crossroads Coffee in North Haven prepare an array of handmade truffles to pair alongside each wine.
