Italian Wine & Pizza pairing with Aaron Rizzo.
Launching the Summer Season.
In Malta we celebrate the love for wine with Festivals and feasts. Influenced by centuries of culture and enrichment of society. The Mediterranean islands of Malta enjoy an excellent supply of Italian influence in the cuisine.
The Knights of Malta are famous for leaving a legacy with their many palaces and striking architecture criss-crossing the islands. The particular Spinola Palace is a masterpiece of Baroque architecture that sprouts a green oasis in St Julian’s.
Salumeria is well renowned for its Valletta hotspot.
Frequented by the brightest minds of Malta throughout the year. The same crowd is now diversifying its tastes at a pizzeria in the entertainment hub of St Julian’s. Curiously Salumeria has found its niche in a historic location in the nouveau strait street in the vicinity of paceville.
Aaron Rizzo is arguably Malta’s most well respected Sommelier.
For years he has been electrifying the Hotels and Restaurants in Malta by training hundreds of individuals each year, who are seeking to delve further into the world of wine.
