Andar per Bacari

The most famous Veneto wines come from the towns of the same name: Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone. This region has become known as the Italian Bordeaux, with many good red blends.The Veneto also produces the most wine in volume in Northeast Italy, and in good years it’s the number one producer in Italy as a whole.

Though some of the Veneto’s appellations have received criticism for their wine quality, most notably the areas of Soave and Valpolicella, new technologies seem to be improving things to some degree.  We intend to find out if that’s true!

Join us for a tasting of some of the most famous wines of Italy!  We are aware that the tasting will occur on the observance of Ash Wednesday, so we will be pairing the wines with some appropriate foods.


The cost for members is $27.  The cost for guests is $32.
