Wedding and special events venue Dover Hall Estate, which began a monthly themed wine dinner back in June, is taking guests on a trip to Italy this Thursday as part of its ongoing Alfresco Dinner Series.
The 33,000-square-foot Tudor-style Goochland County estate will transport guests to Tivoli, Italy for the evening to indulge in gnocchi, risotto, and other handcrafted creations as part of a rustic, family-style feast from chef Glenn Hooper of Mosaic Catering and Events.
The evening will open with a cocktail hour by the estate’s reflecting pool featuring homemade gnocchi, followed by a number of Tuscan-style dinner courses. The evening will close out with guests enjoying hand-made gelato from local purveyor Nick DeLuca and a sip of limoncello.
Thursday’s Italian dinner kicks off at 6:30 PM at Dover Hall Estate, located at 1500 Manakin Road in Manakin Sabot. Tickets are $125.00.
The series continues September 8th with a culinary trip to Windsor, England; on October 13th, guests will celebrate Oktoberfest with a German-themed dinner. Finally, on November 10th, diners will make a pit stop in Russia for a taste of traditional cuisine and culture.
