Around the Boot with Vin du Pays

Our last Wine Tasting of the season is this Thursday, October 20, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. If it's warm we'll be in the courtyard! Our theme is "Wines from around the Boot," with four wines from four different wine regions in Italy. We're featuring some obscure varietals, and you can compare and contrast the varietals from these different appellations. Our wine host is Joe Barsotti of Barsotti Wines. The price on this one is $55 per person. As always, we feature live entertainment and we pair these special wines with heavy hors d'oeuvres from our chefs Pete & Mike. And as always, we give you the three finger pour and more!

Here's our wines:

Cantine Lenotti de Veneizie
(Veneto 2010)

Cantine Sampietrana Negroamaro (Puglia 2008)

Cantine Ippolito Classico Superiore Reserva Ciro (Calabria 2007)

Donato D'Angelo Vitis Divina Rosso (Basilicata 2008)

We'll also be tasting two Italian "liquori," Gazio Amaretto and Latinae Sambuca.

E-mail or call Gene Lucente for tickets: or (412) 224-6300. Hope you can make it!
