Taste of Italy Wine Tasting (one of two sessions)
Saturday, February 1, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 10:30 PM (CST)
24 different types of wine and two sessions to choose from:
When you think "great wine", you'd most likely think "Italian". And why not? It is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world, such as Calabria, Campania, Lombardy, Sardinia, Tuscany, Umbria, and Veneto, among others.
Italian Wines have become synonymous with "depth" and "character". Here's your chance to dip those taste buds into the depth and character. The Taste of Italy Wine Tasting Event will introduce you to a different varietals of Italian Wines. Hors d'oeuvres and other refreshments will also be available during the event.
Who said having depth and character is boring?
Socialize: Take a picture of the bottle using instagram hashtag #grapestobottles, followed by a wine name (for example #grapestobottles #boublymuscato).
After the event, you will be able to see it right in your existing instagram account or on our website, along with other participants.
