Panettone & Vino Party

Panettone & Vino Party

On Saturday, December 16, we're bringing good cheer in the form of a party for Italy’s beloved holiday cake, panettone! Join us complimentary tastes of panettone, pandoro, and vino throughout the afternoon.

Literally translating to "big bread," panettone is traditionally made with natural yeast that takes at least 30 hours to rise, then filled with a generous helping of candied fruit and raisins. According to legend, the first panettone was created in Milano in the 15th century (discover the full tale here); the fluffy cake has been an institution around the holidays ever since.

At our Panettone Party, stop by our tasting stations throughout the store from 12-6 p.m. to enjoy a piece of the festive cakes, plus a sip of paired wines such as Prosecco and sweet Moscato. The best part? This party is complimentary! Get a taste of the Italian holiday cake, then pick your favorite to bring home for the holidays.

Once you have a taste for the dessert, incorporate the tradition into your holiday festivities! Explore our selection of panettoni in the market (over 40 unique recipes to choose from!) and online, then learn how to dress the cake all'italiana with Lidia Bastianich.
