On August 15, Barone Fini wines will partner with I Trulli Enoteca e Ristorante, located at 122 East 27th Street between Lexington and Park Avenues, to bring a taste of Ferragosto to the United States. Ferragosto is an annual Italian holiday celebrated on August 15; I Trulli and Barone Fini have created a celebratory menu in honor of this tradition. For every glass of Barone Fini wine that’s poured, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to The Food Bank For New York City. 

Ferragosto originated as a celebration of the Italian harvest. Enjoyed by peasants and aristocrats alike, the festival gave everyone the opportunity to gather together, break bread, and enjoy the fruits of the labor season. Today, Ferragosto is celebrated on August 15th marked with parties, abundant feasts, and fireworks.


Barone Fini dates back to 1497 when two noble Venetian families (Bonmartini and Fini) united in marriage and began producing wine. Today, 15th generation family member Giovanni Bonmartini-Fini serves as President of Barone Fini, overseeing the winery’s production, including the winery’s hand harvesting and sorting to produce quality Italian wines at an affordable price point. 


I Trulli Enoteca e Ristorante is one of New York City’s landmarks of fine Italian dining. Its wine list features more than 450 Italian labels personally selected by owner Nicola Marzovilla, and the pasta remains hand-rolled daily by matriarch Dora Marzovilla. On August 15, I Trulli will feature some of its finest foods paired with Barone Fini wines with a specially-curated menu to commence the Ferragosto celebration in NYC. The four-course menu will be $58, plus $10 per glass of Barone Fini wine.

I was invited to I Trulli to a wine tasting and enjoy authentic pasta and learn about  Barone Fini wines. I just have to say I really enjoyed this special day and the delicious meal and wine. It was a pleasure meeting everyone. It is also great to see 100% of the proceeds from every glass of Barone Fini wine that is poured will be donated to The Food Bank For New York City. August 15th where will you be? Hopefully enjoying great wine and food at I Trulli Enoteca e Ristorante. 

Disclosure: I was invited to attend this amazing press event at I Trulli. Opinions are mine 100%. Swag was given.
