(New York, NY… January 2014) Pizzetteria Brunetti (626 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10014 pizzetteriabrunetti.com 212-255-5699) will host their second “Meet The Winemaker” tasting series in the West Village on Tuesday, January 21 beginning at 7 p.m. Prosecco producer Canella (canellaspa.it) and wine import company Empson USA Inc. (empsonusa.com) will be pouring free tastings of their sparkling wines at the Italian eatery for guests. Winemaker Nicoletta Canella will speak with guests and offer pairing suggestions to complement Chef Gerardo’s cuisine.
Canella winery was founded in 1947 by Luciano Canella outside of Venice. The winery is run by his children, Alessandra, Lorenzo, Nicoletta and Monica, and currently produces 9 sparkling wine labels. As of 2009, wines may only be labeled “Prosecco” if they have been produced in one of the specific areas of northeastern Italy, including Conegliano where the Canella winery is located. The brand and family of Canella come from the heart of this appellation, and have become almost synonymous with Prosecco itself.
Pizzetteria Brunetti began with a father and son reunion. After 18 years apart, Michael Brunetti (aka Pop) and his son and chief pizzaiolo Jason Brunetti (aka Sonny) decided to go into business together and devoted themselves with passion and perfectionism to the task of making their ideal Neapolitan pizza. The duo opened their first namesake Neapolitan pizzeria in Westhampton Beach in May 2010, which has been named “Best Pizza” on Long Island by Newsday and Dan’s Papers. After much success, the guys took their vision to the West Village in September 2013. With their specialty Neapolitan pizza oven named Bella 626 keeping customers happy, the business has been thriving since.
