Tour of Tuscany Wine Dinner

Tour of Tuscany Wine Dinner
with special guest
Pascual Salvadori from Palm Bay Importers
Thursday, April 9, 2009 ~ 7:00 PM
$75 all inclusive

Springtime in Tuscany is magical. Flowers begin to bloom, vineyards are filled with workers pruning and preparing the vines, and the streets of towns both small and large become the meeting place for friends and strangers. Many people sit outside on their terrace and enjoy antipasti and local wines. As we transition to spring, Sotto Sopra teams up with Republic National Distributing Company and brings to you special guest, Pascual Salvadori from Palm Bay Importers.

This menu highlights some of our favorite food and wine pairings based on the Tuscan culture. We begin with a delicate pate paired with a fresh Tuscan sparkling wine and move through courses of rabbit stew and wild boar paired with an outstanding Brunello from the historic 2004 vintage in Tuscany. We invite you to be our guest and have a chance to meet Pascual, as we taste some of best known wines from Tuscany!
