VIRTUAL TASTING: Central Italy with Charles Lazzara

Virtual Tasting: Central Italy with Charles Lazzara
Saturday, August 22nd at 7:00 pm


Since you can’t visit wine country, we’re bringing Central Italian wine country to your living room! Join us for a live, interactive tasting with Charles Lazzara who will lead us in an exploration of Central Italy, highlighted by a comparison of Chianti Classico Riserva vs Montefalco Sagrantino. Charles has 360 degree software, which will allow us to "fly" around the vineyards. Chianti Classico Riserva is justly famous for producing high quality full-bodied reds, but for those of you who haven't experienced Montefalco Sagrantino, you're in for big tannic treat!

These are steak wines!  VV will run a steak special that evening, so consider ordering a steak or two to enjoy with your wines that night.

Wines presented will be available for sale at Vino Venue so you can taste along for the ultimate sensory experience. Zoom invitation will be shared upon purchase of two or more bottles of wine*.

PRO TIPS: Make it a date night! Pick up our Cheese & Charcuterie platter from the Grab-N-Go fridge or order dinner for take-out or curbside.
