8/27 Italian wine seminar – Italian Wines Vs. French Wines event with a French Gourmet Dinner

A night of tasting, education and fun as we compare a selection of Italian wines ( our focus ) against the same French varieties.  Join our native Italian wine specialist as he takes you through 10 selected wines to showcase how different and at times how similar the wine styles can be.  A great event for novices and experienced wine-o-philes alike.  Do not miss this unique comparative tasting and take a journey from Italy to France and back!  Our 5 senses will be strongly called upon for a beautiful cultural and exclusive experience.

We will be at our new venue : the upscale Restaurant ARGO in Hanzomon

Orange wines tend to be unique and exciting.
