The Feast of the Assumption
August 14 - 17
Wine Tastings
All Four Days



From Thursday through Sunday, August 14th to August 17th Little Italy will be celebrating the 114th "Feast of the Assumption."


When Little Italy was settled, the community was centered on its beautiful church, Holy Rosary and its patron saint, the Virgin Mother. In the Roman Catholic religion, August 15th was the day Mary ascended into heaven. So for this grotto, the Feast of the Assumption is a very special day. As busy as Mayfield Road is, it is shut down for the four-day celebration in order to accommodate the crowds that come to add to this rich and beautiful tradition.


We at Little Italy Wines are very proud to participate in the celebration with our family, friends and great customers.

We will be having wine tastings Thursday through Sunday
