Event Description

Gather on the terrace at Stirrups for an unforgettable evening exploring the food and wine of Italy, the Bel Paese—beautiful country—home to some of the oldest winemaking traditions in the world. The evening will transport you through Italy’s varied terroir by way of food and wine, all the way from the northern Alpine vineyards of Lombardy to the ocean-swept hills of southern Sicily.

Throughout the evening you’ll taste a great diversity of wine, thanks to Italy’s many romantic landscapes, with samples including Tuscan Chianti, Vento Soave, and some of the best prosecco, merlot and pinot grigio from the Mediterranean. Mingle with other wine connoisseurs as you sip and sample items from the chef-paired menu of classic Italian cuisine, including tomahawk beef grilled over a rustic open-flame cauldron and Cacio e Pepe pasta served in a parmesan wheel. Cin cin!

Tickets are $99 and include small plates and wine tastings.
