SOLD OUT

In the northwest of Italy resides one of the great food / wine regions on the entire planet. Home to Italy's last royal family and influenced profoundly by the proximity to France, Piedmont possesses some of the most refined foodstuffs and elegant wines that the Boot has to offer. At the same time, all the products of the land are very much of the land...there is a profound simplicity about everything that happens here. But as everyone knows, simple is very hard to achieve. We will do our very best to explore the entirety of the bounty of this land at this dinner.

While most of us know about the Veneto Region because of the city of Venice (and those Venetian merchants that made the Veneto one of the most famous regions on the planet about 600-800 years ago), it is the city of Verona and its surrounding areas that we will focus on tonight...through its wines, of course.

In wine terms, Italy has gone through a revolution over the past 50 years and this region has led the charge with its prototypical vinous expressions: Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone. We all grew up with these wines; they graced every red-checkered table cloth joint west of the Atlantic Ocean; and no wines in Italy have changed as much as these since their origins long ago. Tonight will be an incredible voyage through the history of Italy and the modern history of Italian wine.
