    Join Us at Monte's Trattoria for an exclusive "Meet & Greet" and book signing, and wine pairing with fellow FBAA member, Tony Margiotta, author of "Hidden Gems of Italy: An Insider's Secret Formula To Find Top-Class Italian Wines And Taste La Dolce Vita," the BEST EUROPEAN WINE BOOK WINNER at the Gourmand International.

    Tony roams the less-traveled pockets of Italian wine country in search of artisanal wines. These are hand-crafted and limited production wines that stand apart from their mass-market peers. He is the owner of Gladiator Wine Distribution, an importer and distributor of small-production Italian wines. His wine selections have won double gold and silver medals at the New York International Wine Competition for superior flavor profile and price.

    Mr. Margiotta works tirelessly for his clients by developing innovative wine programs for hotels, private clubs, and restaurants to increase wine revenues and enrich the wine tasting experience. To learn more about the Gladiator Wine Portfolio, go to GladiatorWine.com.

    Monte's Trattoria is a New York legendary Italian restaurant located in the heart of Greenwich Village (NYC) on MacDougal Street between West 3rd and Bleecker. This vintage Italian restaurant has existed since 1918 and the Mosconi family has continued its rich tradition.
    Chef Pietro Mosconi delivers authentic Northen Italian dishes from his region of Emilia Romagna and is often seen in the dining room conversing with his many loyal patrons.

    Looking forward to seeing you all there.
