So this is the last call for the Wine Dinner at Ventana restaurant next Tuesday night This dinner has come together wonderfully, we are about 3/4 booked up — the menu looks fantastic.

I have tasted all of the wines already for this evening and they are showing perfectly. The featured estate for this dinner is Vigna Dogarina from the Veneto region in Northern Italy. We will try two Prosecco which is a specialty of the house, two excellent dry whites from the estate and two ‘Super Veneto’ style reds blending Bordeaux varietals with the indigenous grapes of the region. There will also be one selection from Tuscanny, a 2005 Chianti Classico from Cavallina.

So come on out, enjoy the music, the food, the company and the insights of one of this industries great personalities, Tom Carrol from Paulaner/HP USA.
