Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas, specializing in small plates that put modern twists on Italian classics and fine wines from around the world, invites guests to attend its French Wine Dinner at its Clifton, NJ location on Thursday, October 24 at 7pm.
Since France is one of the largest wine producers in the world, understanding the country's regions is key to understanding the variety of wines. In France, wine is considered an expression of where it was created, rather than just the grapes used. French wines are organized not by grape, but by region and producer. To highlight some of France's world-class wines, Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas is pairing a selection of wines with a spectacular five-course menu, which will be available for one night only.
The French Wine Dinner menu includes:
* Coquille St. Jacques - Shrimp, scallops
