Taste of Tuscany Coming to Cranmore

CONWAY — Cranmore has announced the inaugural Cranmore Food and Wine Event, hosted by Chef Vito Marcello with special guest Salvatore Ferragamo, vintner from Il Borro Wines in Tuscany, Italy.

The event will be held Saturday, June 22, at the base of Cranmore’s North Slope.

The Cranmore Food and Wine Event will feature cooking demonstrations by Marcello and wine sampling from Pine State and Southern Glazer’s paired with food samples from Vito Marcello’s Italian Bistro and Cranmore Mountain and Centerplate. Tickets are $75 per person.

“We are really excited to be adding this event to both Cranmore’s event calendar and bringing something new to the valley,” said Cranmore Marketing Director Rebecca Deschenes. “It should be a great evening of music, wine and food, and we’re looking forward to bringing it back year after year.”

“I’m excited to be teaming with Cranmore for the first annual Food & Wine Event. I can’t wait to share a taste of Tuscany in the Mount Washington Valley," said Marcello, owner of Vito Marcello’s Italian Bistro, located at 45 Seavey St. in North Conway.

The Cranmore Food and Wine Event will feature live acoustic music from members of the American Vinyl All Star Band, including Barry Goudreau formerly of the band Boston, Tim Archibald of RTZ/Peter Wolf Band and Danny Beissel of Fosterchild.
