Antonello Owner Antonio Cagnolo & Vince Ferragamo To Host Grape Stomping & Culinary Event For Ronald McDonald House!
You can count on this unlikely duo to be the first to pull up their pant legs, hop into a vat of grapes and stomp them to commemorate one of Italy’s most popular annual traditions celebrating local winemakers and the harvesting of grapes. Restaurateur Antonio Cagnolo and NFL legend Vince Ferragamo, 2 of OC’s most famous Italian Americans, will join forces to recreate the centuries-old Vendemmia on Sunday, October 20 from 1 – 5 p.m.
Those attending will have an opportunity to go grape stomping as well as enjoy a 3-course sit-down Italian dinner, wine tasting, live music and a silent auction. The event, which will be held on the park-like grounds near Antonello Ristorante at South Coast Plaza Village, will benefit Orange County Ronald McDonald House to help the needs of parents with seriously ill children. Tickets, which are $85, $40 for children 6-12, may be purchased by calling (714) 633-1099.
The event is being hosted by Cagnolo and his wife, Fiorella, and Ferragamo and his wife, Jodi, and is being coordinated in conjunction with the Vince Ferragamo Foundation.
“Fiorella and I are delighted to partner with one of my heroes, Vince Ferragamo, and his wife, Jodi, to present our inaugural Vendemmia celebration,” said Cagnolo. “This will be an unforgettable event for the entire family and one that will be nothing but fun!”
Antonello Ristorante is located at 3800 Plaza Drive in Santa Ana.
