Incredible flavors come from the countries that surround the Mediterranean Sea that include Southern Europe, the Levant (Near East or Middle East) and North Africa, in addition to two island nations completely in it, Malta & Cyprus.
With specific regional features like a climate of hot dry summers and humid, cool winters and a generally hilly landscape, it is rich in wine and cuisine.
Enjoy a wine reception with passed hors d’ oeuvres and a 5-course dinner paired expertly with a variety of Mediterranean wines as selected by Executive Chef John Schnupp.
