Winter Picnic with Martini & Rossi Fiero - Food & Beverage Magazine

Winter Picnic with Martini & Rossi Fiero

In celebration of the launch of Martini & Rossi Fiero this month, prominent winemaker Martini & Rossi is partnering with award winning chef Karen Akunowicz and culinary experience company Secret Supper to create a one-of-a-kind winter picnic kit hitting shelves just in time for Valentine’s Day. With outdoor dining options limited and many looking for a safe way to celebrate with loved ones this Valentine’s Day, picnicking has arisen as a year-round solution for safe get-togethers outdoors.

 

Allowing people to gather comfortably despite the colder weather, the kit – which will be available for purchase on SecretSupper.com starting 2/4 – is complete with outdoor winter picnicking essentials from a cutting board and melamine plates to a cashmere throw, knit hats & gloves, hand & foot warmers, and more. Renowned Italian chef and owner of Boston’s Fox & The Knife, Karen Akunowicz, has curated an accompanying food pairings menu, complete with satisfying Italian-inspired recipes that bring the Tuscan sun stateside. And to complete the spread, cocktail ingredients for an easy to make Martini Fiero & Tonic cocktail will be available for easy at-home purchase through ReserveBar.

MARTINI & ROSSI FIERO

MARTINI & ROSSI Fiero is made with a blend of white wines and carefully sourced botanicals including sweet Spanish oranges grown in Murcia, which are hand-peeled and dried under the sun in a traditional and time-consuming method to protect the essential oils in the peel. While the orange peel provides the aperitivo vermouth’s vibrant citrus notes, botanicals artemisia absinthium and artemisia pontica – which are both harvested in the village of Pancallieri in Turin – contribute the signature bitterness and herbal aromatics that are the distinguishing characteristic of Italian aperitivo drinks. The result is the distinctive intense, refreshing citrus flavour of MARTINI & ROSSI Fiero

ABV: 15%
