Aegean Idyll

Nilton Borges, Jr.

Amáli, NYC

We’ve enlisted the stylish Amáli—whose name was inspired by a historical term for lands shared by modern-day Greece, Italy, and Turkey—and Wines from Santorini to prepare a sophisticated Mediterranean feast paired with invigorating wines from the same region.
