As we tour the wine regions of Italy, we’re enjoying not only exquisite wines but indulging in traditional multi-course dinners reflecting each region’s classic dishes which pair beautifully with wine varietal expressions from the same region. While wine may be considered a ‘cocktail’ in the USA, in Italy its sole purpose is complementing food. And OH how we love how it

Join us for GRAZIE!’s 30th
TOUR OF ITALY WINE DINNER!
Wednesday, February 20, 2019
$75 per person
Join us for a fun wine competition!
You’ll be blind-drinking and rating 6 wines. Three from the Spanish wine region of Rioja vs three from the Italian wine region of Veneto. Let’s see if we can distinguish the differences! Fun! Fun! Fun! Not to mention the added benefit of widening our repertoire of wine knowledge.
Bottles will be covered so you can’t see them. You’ll be given score cards and voting for which ones you like best. We can’t wait to see which wines get the most votes!
Who will win? Italy or Spain?
Maurizio has a designed a fabulous 4-course menu for this event. He’s making Paella!
Dario Soldan, wine expert and owner of Classico Wine Distributors, will be presenting the wines.
You won’t know what you’re drinking until the end, but you can be sure the wines will be awesome!
Indulgence is how we roll, so come hungry!
The contents of the brown bags will remain top secret!
