You may find it hard to believe after the summer we’ve had in New York, but this evening, September 22, marks the official arrival of Autumn in the northern hemisphere. Which makes our Summer Garden Party a Fall Garden Party, for which we’ve selected five wines geared to help you through this untimely seasonal transition.

Enzo Mecella is one of the most gifted winemakers in the central Italian region of Marche: a graduate from Conegliano’s famed Scuola Enologica, he’s been making wine in Fabriano for over thirty years. Blessed with prime sites in the Matelica and Conero zones, Enzo’s commitment to cultivating local grapes such as Verdicchio and Montepulciano, plus a deft touch in the cellar, allow his wines to show all the essential character of their varieties and terroir.

Join us at I Trulli tonight in the lush seclusion of our private back garden, where you can indulge in Chef Patti Jackson‘s famous seasonal antipasti and taste five of Enzo’s delicately balanced wines. They’re perfect for these cool late-September nights, but we’re happy to bet you’ll still be drinking them after summer’s long gone.
