We've partnered with Wilmington based restaurant, Rocco Italian Grill & Sports Bar to create the ultimate at-home pairing!
Sunset Blush, our featured wine in February, is a sweet, thirst-quenching wine that bursts with notes of grapefruit, strawberries and peaches. For those who enjoy a spicy kick, try it alongside Rocco's Buffalo Chicken Pizza. To satiate your sweet tooth, sip on this bright pour while enjoying a slice of their decadent Chocolate Layer Cake.
The pie is a crowd-pleaser among staff and guests. "All our pizza dough is made daily in-house and every pizza is hand-tossed to order. We use grilled, fine-chopped chicken so you get an even bite every time. Our buffalo sauce topping has just the right amount of tang and heat to compliment the blend of mozzarella and fresh bleu cheese crumbles" says Rocco's Manager Amy Sassaman.
Local eateries, like Rocco Italian Bar & Grill, continue to face substantial obstacles due to the COVID-19 crisis. Sassaman stresses the importance of supporting local establishments stating "We are still under restrictions and without the generous support of the local community, we wouldn't be here. As long as we have guests coming in the door - whether for takeout, dine-in, catering or events - we can continue providing the food and drink they love!"
Elevate your next takeout night with this local pizza and wine pairing. Shop Sunset Blush online or with Curbside Pick Up and save $2/bottle or $18/case. Plus, mention this post during your visit to Rocco and enjoy a special 10% discount on your purchase through February.
