Event description

Description

The Italian Cultural & Community Center will host a wine tasting on Friday, May 3, 2019, at 7:00 pm as part of its wine tasting series Come Wine with Us. This guided wine tasting will offer Tre and Due Bicchieri Gambero Rosso-awarded wines paired with bites from Mia Bella Trattoria. The Gambero Rosso wine ratings in Vini d’Italia are built up on the number of glasses (bicchieri) awarded to a wine, which is indicated in the wine guide with a number of stylized glasses next to the wine's name. The highest rating is three glasses (Tre Bicchieri).

The tasting will be led by Jon Muellner of Dionysus Imports.

Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a one-of-a-kind tasting experience through the exploration of the cultural, environmental, historical and social context of these regional wines, paired with bites carefully selected to create a distinct and unique flavor.

Mia Bella Trattoria

“Mia Bella” is Italian for “My Beautiful.” A “trattoria” is a small Italian restaurant. Welcome to our beautiful little Italian restaurant.

Like the traditional Trattorias where Italian families gather for wine, delicious food, and warm memories, Mia Bella Trattoria presents creative fare in dining destinations that are fun, intimate, and moderately priced.

Here you will enjoy a delightful fusion of traditional Italian food with regional American twists. In a tradition of his own making, Owner/Chef Youssef Nafaa has created an exciting menu of familiar foods pushed to unprecedented levels, with daring preparations and imaginative ingredients.

Jon Muellner

Jon Muellner has been building wine lists and tasting event programs across Houston for over 4 years.

His favorite red grape is Nebbiolo, and also enjoys White Burgundies along with an occasional dessert wine.
