Italy After Hours - Wine Tasting
Presented by Vinny Mangelli

We invite you to join us for a special “Wine After Hours” as we feature and enjoy six select wines from across Italy

Wednesday, April 24th  8:00 p.m.

Tickets - $25.00 (+ tax)

One year ago, Vinny was hired to join the BottleMixx staff.  Since he joined us, he’s belabored us to have a 100% Italian wine tasting from a 100% Italian (him!).  Because he’s so passionate about wine, we’re giving him his shot and he’s gone to great lengths to find you six (we told him five, but sometimes he doesn’t listen) exceptional wines reflecting the variety in his ancestry’s home country – Italia! So join us for a wide spectrum of wines, across all price points from the value to the masterpieces which only Italy brings (oh…and we’ll wish Vinny a happy first anniversary at the Mixx!)

This is a seated tasting (after normal store hours) and space is limited 30 attendees. Hors d’oeuvres will accompany the tasting.  Make your reservation today –stop in or call us at 919-615-1703. 

Please note that any cancellations must be made prior to Tuesday, May 14th. No refunds will be given after this date if you are not able to attend.


Special bottle pricing will be available for orders placed the day of this tasting.

 About Vinny Mangelli: 

Born Vincent in Brooklyn, NY (yeah, not too much of a cliché, right?) – he started out on Ernest & Julio jug Italian varietals before graduating to straw basket Chiantis.  A third generation Italian with roots back to Napoli & Bari, Vinny has travelled much of Europe to refine his love of Italian (ok, and French) wines.  After “retiring”, he’s come to join our staff at Bottlemixx and share his lifelong love of wine.
