Join us on Thursday, March 21st as we taste and explore Italy’s Big Three! We’ll explore some of the oldest wine producing regions in the world… Veneto, Piedmont and Tuscany are three of Italy’s powerhouse regions producing some of today’s tastiest selections.
It is our belief that to understand Italian’s wine, you need to first understand the region of it’s origin. This relaxed evening of authentic regional food and paired wine selections will tell the tale led by the driving force behind our world class wine program Dante’s Director and Level 1 Court of Master Sommelier Jennifer Zangrilli and Mario’s General Manager Gary Waite.
