Alto Adige With Massimo Capra
November 14, 2014

Chef Massimo Capra will be celebrating the Alto Adige region during his first evening of the Niagara Culinary Series. The delicious 5-course menu features wine pairings from Elena Walch Winery, one of the most innovative wineries in Alto Adige. An architect by trade, Elena Walch married into one of the most prominent wine families of the region and introduced modern concepts to the traditional processes including purposely limiting the harvest’s yield to result in a richer, bolder flavor. Their wines are renowned for their great personality and character which pairs well with the hearty, peasant style cuisine of Alto Adige which pulls as much from its Germanic roots as it does its Italian heritage.

  • One night’s accommodation in a Fallsview King Room
  • Mix and mingle
  • Standing Cocktail Reception with Canapes and wine pairing
  • 5-course dinner with wine pairings per course from Elena Walch Winery

A Tour Of Umbria With Massimo Capra
March 6, 2015

Italy's fourth smallest region is undergoing a renaissance of sorts. Long overshadowed by its more famous neighbour Tuscany, Umbria is now starting to receive the recognition it deserves. This includes a stop on Massimo’s culinary tour of Italy. Among those receiving recognition is Marco Caprai of Arnaldo-Caprai Winery- our winery partner. Their pioneering initiatives in taking the Sagrantino grape to the forefront of Italian viticulture has earned high praise and resulted in the winery being named the 2012 European Winery of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
