DETAILS: Historically a northern Italian concept from Genoa to Milan and Venice, Aperitivo Hour is flush with appetizing beverage and small bites. The goal is to be in the company of friends, food, and beverage—the true trifecta of a rich, social culture.
On Thursday, June 21st, Solo Italiano will embrace this tradition and open its doors and patio to Portland Wine Week's visitors and showcase Aperitivo Hour's full, authentic experience. All of chef Paolo Laboa's culinary creations Del Giorno will be complimentary, with appetizing wines, vermouths, and/or wine-based spirit cocktails the responsibility of the guest. Opportunities to relax while learning a bit about this dynamic of wine culture will certainly abound.
