Join us for a celebration of the food and wine of the Marche! Girasole is thrilled to welcome David Rendondi of the Garofoli Winery and Dalla Terra Wines. When asked to host, knowing that Lydia’s family is from the Marche region where Garofoli Winery is also located, David quickly responded, “When someone from the Marche calls, we go!”

Winemaking began for the Garofoli family in 1871 when Antonio Garofoli began producing wine for the pilgrims who came from afar to visit the famous Basilica of Loreto. In 1901, his son, Giocchino Garofoli, founded the Garofoli winery, which has long been considered the most historical and important winery of the Marche. Today, the winery is run by the family’s fifth generation and is known for producing prime examples of the regions’ two quintessential wines: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Rosso Conero, both of which will be featured at Girasole’s dinner.
Garofoli Winery is represented by Dalla Terra (meaning “of the earth” in Italian) Winery Direct® as a direct importer of a limited selection of Italy’s finest wines. As always, at this vintner’s dinner, the wines, including some of the limited vintages, will be available for retail purchase. Case and mixed-case orders receive a 10% discount.
We hope you’ll join Girasole for this delicious evening, celebrating family, food, and wine of the Marche. Please call 540-253-5501 to make your reservation. Dinner starts at 6:30 p.m.
