Michael Anthony's has, since its inception,
been instrumental in developing and promoting
unique culinary events here in the South Carolina
Lowcountry. This has led us to the formation of
programs we have offered that highlight the many
foods and wines of our Italian ethnic heritage as
well as many other well noted  culinary
regions of the world.

Over the years we have hosted many wine
maker dinners with very well known and
respected winery owners and winemakers such
as Koerner Rombauer, Ferdinando Frescobaldi,
Heidi Barrett, David Ramey and
David Miner among others.

Our familiar wine tastings in our specialty Italian
market have introduced many wine enthusiasts to
more esoteric and enjoyable wines. Our annual
events such as our Christmas Eve Feast of the
Seven Fishes and Winter Truffle Dinner have
become renowned and anticipated each year.
