Ciao, tutti!

Our first Taste & Learn of the summer will take place on Saturday, June 22, at 5 p.m. At this event, we will begin our journey in the Veneto region, tasting the award-winning Pieropan Soave, a remarkably refreshing white wine typically enjoyed in warmer months.

From there, we will travel to Brancaia Winery, maker of our next three wines and located in Tuscany’s romantic Castellina in Chianti. Known for its sunny summers and gentle breezes that cool the hills, this region produces the renowned Sangiovese grape. Redolent with red, ripe fruit and lively acidity, Sangiovese forms the basis of the Chianti Classico and Tre wines we will taste at this event.

As always, Chef Francesco has prepared a special menu to complement each wine we will pour.

If you’ve not attended Taste & Learn before or if you’re a regular who never misses a  month, here are a few gentle reminders to ensure the best experience possible:
  • Taste & Learn is an educational presentation as well as an excellent food and wine experience. We want everyone to enjoy everything about the evening, so please be courteous and attentive while our presenters are speaking.
  • Both the wine merchant and our Chef will say a few words at each course. Please refrain from tasting the wine or the dish until they have each spoken.
  • Due to the ongoing popularity of our events, we have implemented assigned seating to ensure all parties attending together may sit together.

Our last Taste & Learn sold out quickly, at only $75 per person (tax & gratuity included) this is an incredible deal, so don’t wait—reserve your space today by calling (702) 364-5300 or clicking here to make your reservations today! I look forward to raising a glass with you soon.
