Description

"In Vino Veritas--Wine Your Way Across Italy"

Bring any Italian wine* Every guest (21 and over) will get to taste their wine paired with 3 different dishes sample as we chat about Italian wine regions, the grape varieties they grow, and explore the synergy of wine and food! At the end of tasting you will have a great idea of which food pair better with the wine you brough that night.

The conversation will be engaged by Suzie Berregaard, whose wine passion is reflected in these "wine credentials."

*You can get an Italian wine at any wine store or in almost any wine isle. Larger stores will have the selection labeled by the country, stores with less shelf space might have them under a section called "imports." Anything from Italy (red, white, or sparkling) will do!
