Join us at Taurasi Restaurant in downtown Westmont (steps from the metra station) on Wednesday, November 30th, at 6:30pm for a spectacular and authentic 5 course wine dinner featuring Beivuma, a local importer of fine Italian wines!  It’s our last one of 2022!




Taurasi's chef/owner/sommelier, Raffaele Cirillo, will take you on a culinary journey of Italy comparing four of the most prestigious Italian reds from Tuscany, Campania, and the Veneto, all paired with traditional and innovative cuisine.




Two second level sommeliers will provide additional information on all of the wines tasted. Don’t miss the last BIG RED wine event at Taurasi this year. Cost is only $99 per person (plus tax/gratuity). Space is limited and will sell out quickly. For reservations, click the link provided or call Taurasi at 630-663-9467.




We hope to see you there!
