“From the vineyards to the glass.” Zonin
Amazing Italian food paired with fine wines from Zonin, Italy’s largest privately owned vineyard? Ummm, yes please! Last week I was lucky enough to attend a four-course wine dinner at one of my favourite Abu Dhabi establishments, Circo located in the Intercontinental Hotel.
“When we opened Circo in 1996, our business plan was simple, Dad’s Hospitality, Mom’s Food, run by the sons.” The Maccioni Family
I was very excited by last Friday’s dinner date for a few reasons. Firstly, I love Italian cuisine, secondly I’m always keen to try out new places and lastly the Intercontinental Hotel here in Abu Dhabi holds a dear place in our hearts as it’s where we stayed as a family for the interview process to start this journey back in the summer of 2008.
