Ruffino commemorated the occasion on October 17th. To pay homage to its Italian roots, the brand held the Anniversary Dinner at West Village’s hotspot pizzeria, Emily.
Beppe D’ Andrea, Ruffino’s Global Brand Ambassador, spoke about the brand’s heritage and origins. The brand was born when cousins Leopoldo and Ilario established their winery in Pontassieve, Italy in 1877. They started with a simple belief: that the best wines come from the best vineyards. Since then, the brand has gone on to make it’s wines with the highest quality fruit and modern cellar techniques, embracing history and tradition along the way.
The menu featured Emily’s classic pizzas paired with a selection of Ruffino’s best wines.
Some of our favorite pizza’s included The Emily (pistachio, honey, truffle Sottocenere), The Quattro (bacon, pickled chili, ranch), and The Classic (sauce, farm cheese, mozzarella).
Guests were encouraged to fill out their favorite pizza + wine combos before they left the party.
