This week's pairing and pouring will feature hard ciders from Kayla Rae Cellars, Rockford’s hometown winery. They offer wines, hard ciders and beer. Acqua In Vino carries a wide variety of their hard ciders – apple pie, blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, peach, pineapple, raspberry, and strawberry. You’ll be able to try them tonight.
For the pairings, we will be bringing back our popular and delicious charcuterie plates. Charcuterie is a French appetizer featuring a plate of cooked and dry-cured meats with specialty cheeses, accompanied by crusty baguettes or crackers, pungent mustards and toppings, enticing olives and pickles and other savory morsels. Done the Acqua In Vino way, our charcuterie plate is an awe-inspiring sight and you get to eat it all with your hands! The wide array of flavors that a charcuterie plate provides—ranging from sweet, to salty, and everything in-between—can't be beat.
The fourth of July is a significant day in every American’s life, for we earned our long-cherished independence on this very day. Freedom is a gift, given to us by our freedom fighters. They had to struggle to win independence and some sacrificed their lives so that we can live in a free country. Their sacrifices should not go in vain. Let each one of us make a promise to ourselves that as long as we live, we will help America grow into a better nation with each passing day. As fellow Americans on this holiday occasion, show your patriotism as a citizen of the most magnificent country. God bless America!
