Venetian Wine Dinner @ La Dolce Vita

Venetian Wine Dinner @ La Dolce Vita

Thursday, December 6th, 6 pm

The wines of Veneto, in northeastern Italy, are as different as the individual zones within the region. Veneto produces red wines and white, including some that hearken back to the earliest, most traditional known to man, and some that are made using techniques just invented in the last few decades. Soave, Valpolicella, and Amarone are perhaps the most familiar names, and quality minded producers in these areas are currently making some of Italy’s most stimulating wines. Join us and our friends at La Dolce Vita as we welcome special guest Master Sommelier Michael McNeil of Quality Wine & Spirits who will guide us through this very special dinner featuring wines of the Veneto, expertly paired with classic cuisine of the region. This is certain to be one of the best culinary events of the year here in Athens,
so don’t miss it; make reservations early and come hungry.
