Spritz O’Clock with Katie Dorazio

Spritz O'Clock with Katie Dorazio

Wed 05 / 10


Long time friends of the shop know Katie Dorazio and the team at Dalla Terra for helping us stock our shelves with some of the best wines Italy has to offer.  From Vietti and their beautiful Barolo in the Piedmont, to Adami and their festive Prosecco in the Vento to Tascante and their balanced wines in Sicily and everything in between, Dalla Terra has become synonymous with the great wines of Italy.

Now she is bringing us some fun and fizzy spritzes that are every bit as artisanal as their traditional wine imports.

Join us as we pour these delicious Spritz cocktails at the bar, as a perfect prelude to one of our in-house charcuterie boards, and make sure to grab your favorite to go at special discounting only while Katie is behind the bar!


The Italian Spritz cites its origins in the Veneto region and dates back to the late 1800s when northern Italy was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. The Germanic soldiers in the area found the local Italian wines to be too strong for their tastes so they added a "spritz" (German for splash) of water to the wine to create something lighter and more easy-drinking. As lighter sparkling wines and Prosecco became more popular, these replaced the still wines and fortified spirits started to be incorporated into the drink in the early 1900s. The Spritz as we know it today did not become popular until the mid-21st century.

Across Italy and in cities throughout the world, Spritz are enjoyed as a pre-dinner cocktail or "aperitif." Light and refreshing, Spritz are shared with friends in social settings throughout the seasons.

Almare Spritz features three distinctly Mediterranean recipes with low alcohol and no added sugars in an easy to enjoy and share full bottle size.
