Experience The Wines Of Rome At L'Aperitivo Romano This February

Eat and drink like a Roman just for one night

Rome, with its beautiful art and architecture, and its centuries of history, is also home to one of the most fascinating cuisines in the world. Many of its dishes have become universally beloved classics, like carbonara and cacio e pepe. But there are still many dishes, techniques and flavor nuances in Roman cuisine and wines that outsiders can only know and appreciate through a guided visit to the city itself, or at the occasional event like this month’s upcoming L’Aperitivo Romano on February 26, at Ponte di Rialto in BGC.

A monthly affair hosted by the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines (ICCPI), L’Aperitivo Romano was launched five years ago by ICCPI President Sergio Boero to “create an environment for Italians to gather with great wine and outstanding finger food.”


This month’s event will feature three wines from Casale del Giglio, a winery just 50 kilometers off Rome that, in 1985, daringly planted close to 60 experimental vines, achieving superb results.

The wines will be paired with dishes curated by Pascazio, owner of Ponte di Rialto, using authentic Roman ingredients like the intensely flavored Pecorino Semistagionati that takes six months to mature, and the iconic Guancale, bacon made from the cheek of the pig that is traditionally used in spaghetti all’amatriciana. Definitely, L’Aperitivo Romano will be an evening of discovery and gastronomic pleasure.
