It is with great pleasure that Sotto Sopra would like to introduce Michael Mohammadi as your host for this evening’s wine tasting. Michael is Sotto Sopra’s very own wine superman, by day he is a medical researcher working on his Phd in Physiology and at night, a food and wine journalist, check out his very popular

Michael with the vines of Fuligni: one of the premier producers of Brunello di Montalcino

For his first tasting at Sotto Sopra, Michael wants to take you on a tour of Italy through their wines from Tuscany, Piedmont, Friuli-Venezia Giulia as well as a selection from Southern Italy.

Come taste 7 Italian wines, meet the gregarious and knowledgeable Michael Mohammadi, and enjoy a couple lite bites during the tasting. Stay for dinner and pay ½ price for any bottle of wine sampled during that evenings tasting.

About Michael Mohammadi

Michael Mohammadi has a passion for cooking and once dreamed to graduate from culinary school. He keeps recipes simple and tries to highlight the flavors of the main ingredient. He loves the challenge of pairing the right wine with any dish.

His culinary influences are vast, ranging from German, to Persian (his heritage) to traditional American or Mediterranean. Michael would define his cooking style as “simple with a twist” and almost always make a dish with a wine pairing or experience in mind.

He has traveled Italy and has a love and passion for Italian wines. His other passions include writing, spending time with his three dogs, and watching the Lions, Red Wings, Tiger’s, or Michigan Football. He loves to run and hike and especially likes cold weather mountaineering and camping, as well as back country skiing.

Michael is focusing on the Baltimore area wine and food scene, but will include reviews and information from his travels around the world. The whole point of this site is to make wine and fine dining informal and fun. For information on how Michael rates wines and his personal tastes, see the “Wine Ratings” page.
