Quite possibly the best way to "ride out the snow storm" this weekend!!!
 
Join us for  Volo's Annual "Junk Food & Wine Pairing" on Saturday, January 19th, 2019 from 2-4:30pm. Warm up at this fun and tasty event when we will be pairing boutique wines with your favorite junk foods and guilty pleasures in Volo's cozy dining room and heated/enclosed cabana patio!
 
Ever wonder what wine goes best with your favorite snack? Or possibly what you should drink next time you reach for some Skittles (try Moscato) or a Moon Pie (think Brachetto)?

This promises to be another dynamic event full of exciting wines, delicious food, and good friends. Sample up to eight boutique wine selections and enjoy food pairings with some of Chef/Partner Stephen Dunne's own versions of classic junk foods and indulgences, while you enjoy our cozy indoor bar/dining room and enclosed/heated year-round cabana patio.
