COME WITH US!
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 does that!

Join us for GRAZIE!’s 29th
TOUR OF ITALY WINE DINNER!
Wednesday, January 16, 2019
$75 per person
On the evening of Wednesday, January 16, we’ll be doing something a little different!
NAPA vs TOSCANA
You’ll be tasting Napa Valley blends and Tuscan blends, aka “Super Tuscans”, side by side and rating them. Bottles will be brown-bagged so you can’t see them. You’ll be given score cards and voting for which ones you like best. How fun is that? We can’t wait to see which wines get the most votes!
Who will win? California or Tuscany?
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 bet your bottom dollar the wines will be awesome!
Maurizio is preparing a fabulous Italian 4-course dinner for you.
Gustosissimo! (Italian for Yummy!)
Indulgence is how we roll, so come hungry!
The contents of the brown bags will remain top secret!

We can’t wait to see you! Until then … If you can’t be with the wine you love, Honey … Love the wine you’re with!
From all of us to all of you …
