Chef Jacques asks, “Do they make wine in Italy?” Indeed they do, and some of the finest in the world, too (at least outside of France)! So please join us Thursday, April 13th, at 6:00pm for a tasting and dinner featuring wines from some of Italy’s most celebrated wine regions, from Piemonte to Friuli, the Veneto, Toscana and Etna. Jeff Dixon, CWE, of Maze Row Wine Merchant importer and exporter will guide us along our exploration of Italian wine through a French culinary lens.

Chef Jacques and team will offer a feast evoking the most beautiful regions in Europe (once again, outside of France, but of course).
