Obiká’s Historical Wine Event

Fans of history might be interested in mozzarella specialist Obiká’s special event this Tuesday, July 16th at 7:30 in their Century City location.  In the 18th Century, a man named Phillip Mazzei from Tuscany in Italy brought to New England a cargo of sangiovese grape vines destined for the vineyard at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate.  Eventually a friendship formed between the two and Mazzei apparently heavily influenced Jefferson’s ideas on equality and rights.  Today, Mazzei Wineries is still going strong and the current CEO and descendent of Phillip, Francesco Mazzei will be present at the event honoring his illustrious ancestor and showcasing the family wines.  The four course dinner costs $48 and includes wine, but you’d better secure your spot as fast as your little fingers can dial (310) 556-2452.
