Demo Cooking Experience & Wine Dinner with Lorenzo Polegri
Friday, February 22nd 7:00 pm

$79 per person* not including tax & gratuity


Vino Venue welcomes dear friend, Lorenzo Polegri, for an authentic Umbrian wine dinner experience! Each fall, we look forward to spending time with Lorenzo touring, tasting and cooking in the walled city of Orvieto in Umbria during our annual group trip. This winter you don’t have to travel far to experience the Tuscan way of life and cuisine. 

For one night only, Chef Lorenzo will transform our event room into an Italian trattoria, complete with live cooking demonstrations! Enjoy handcrafted, authentic Umbrian recipes complete with wine pairings from Casa Segreta. You'll not only be one of the first to try Lorenzo's wines, brand new to our market, but you can also pick up a signed copy of his book to enjoy his authentic recipes time and again with family and friends!
