My friends! Our next Taste & Learn will be held on Saturday, July 30th from 4-6 pm. We’re excited to return to Tuscany with the wines of Castello Banfi. If you remember the last time we featured Banfi wines at Taste & Learn it was the most successful event we’ve ever had. We believe this event will reserve quickly!


This coming Taste & Learn will feature our regular format of four select wines, but with a new twist.  The honored Mr. Luciano Castiello from Castello Banfi is our guide for the evening, and he suggested that we serve a mystery wine at the end of the dinner!  From what I could learn the mystery wine is one of the best they produce at Castello Banfi. I for one am extremely excited to taste this specialty!

Here we go with the menu and wines.
