                                    Fourteen Wines - Seven Tuscan and Seven from Piedmont

                                    It's like the Italian Gods of wine are visiting us.

                                    Three Pio Cesare - Three Gaja - Two Biondi Santi - Two Sette Ponte

                                    Who produces the better wine, Piedmont or Tuscany? You decide.

                                    Barolo to Brunello - Gaja to Biondi Santi - Many costing over $300.

                                    As usual tasting will be held at my house. Limited to 16 people.

Also as usual Valerie, our gifted chef, will be back with some perfect matches for our Italian varietals.

If you reserve a seat, and you cancel within two weeks of the tasting, you will still be responsible for the cost.

                                    Unless we have people on the wait list, who can take your place.
