VIRTUAL TASTING & COOKING DEMO: Umbria with Lorenzo Polegri & Lelia Bryan

Virtual Tasting & Cooking Demo: Umbria with Lorenzo Polegri & Lelia Bryan
Saturday, February 6th at 5:00 pm

Join us for a special wine tasting and cooking demo with our dear friend Lorenzo, which many of our customers have come to know and love at Chef Lorenzo's pasta making classes and wine dinners.

At this exclusive virtual tasting, we will tast 3 of Lorenzo's wines and Lorenzo will demonstrate a special dish that pairs well with Pietra Fenice: Cauliflower Veloutè with Pork Belly, Black Cabbage & Toasted Pine Nuts. We'll email you the ingredient list and recipe in advance!


Any list of personal connections between Vino Venue and the wine business has to start with Lorenzo Polegri! Lorenzo's cooking classes and wine dinners have become an annual tradition at VV, and we've led many many guests on tours to Lorenzo's Casa Segreta in the Baschi hills of Umbria in central Italy. Lorenzo calls himself a FarmerChef, to highlight his expertise in grape growing AND culinary prowess. Lorenzo named his latest vineyard "Michael's Vineyard", after VV's Co-Founder (Michael Bryan), as a way to honor his old friend who succumbed to sarcoma cancer shortly thereafter.  The wine made from this vineyard is called Pietra Fenice. All profits of Pietra Fenice will go toward sarcoma research.

Lelia Bryan is Vino Venue's Managing Partner.  She and Michael co-founded Atlanta Wine School in 2003, and rebranded the business as Vino Venue in 2012, as we moved to our current location and greatly increased our offerings.  Lelia and Lorenzo are friends from way back, as Lelia has visited Casa Segreta a number of times over the years, and coordinated his events here at VV.

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 the items listed below.  You will receive an $8 discount with your purchase of all 4 items.

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.
