February Wine Week
Northern Italy + Roner Spirits Dinner
Join us Wednesday, February 22nd as we welcome Kurt Kauffman of Roner Spirits to Dante! This is a Dante first as we’re hosting a distiller and not a wine maker. We have wanted to carry Roner Spirits for awhile and very few are available in Nebraska, so we jumped at the chance when we heard they wanted to visit Dante!
Located in Alto Adige in the Northern Mountain Region of Italy, Roner Spirits is the most awarded distillery in all of Italy and we can’t wait for you to experience cocktails from this amazing distillery. The menu for this dinner is inspired by the Northern Mountain Region of Italy where Roner is located and will include one cocktail, five courses and five perfectly paired wines.
Menu, subject to availability:
Speck Gratinato, Chive Aioli, Pickled Shallot
Buckwheat Blec w/ Braised Rabbit & Chantrelle
Goose Risotto w/ Amarena Cherry
Smoked Venison Loin, Celery Root & Horseradish
“Montebianco” Chestnut Mousse, Blondie, Grappa Gelato
The Northern mountain region of Italy is known for its delicious cuisine that has been shaped by its geography, history, and traditions. The area is characterized by a diverse range of microclimates and fertile soils, which allows for the production of a wide variety of high-quality ingredients, including meat like the speck ham we are serving in the first course. The fertile soil and topography also allows the opportunity to eat game off the land, which is why we’ve opted for Rabbit, Goose and Venison as these are common proteins found in the area. The dolce course features a dessert that originated in France and because the region’s cuisine has been influenced by its neighboring countries, including France, Switzerland, and Austria, this has now become a traditional dessert of Northern Italy. The Northern Mountain region is so diverse and we are hungry for the opportunity to give you a taste of the region.
