Blind Italian wine tasting, prize,Italian style tapas,new friends and funnnnn!

  • Mar 30, 2014 · 5:00 PM

Let's discover who are the wine " connoisseurs" in between " Lovers" tasting the wines I will bring back from my trip in Italy in the next days. We will have 5-6  different wines comparing notes and setting free our taste buds. Who will match more notes with the description from the different wineries will WINN A BOTTLE OF VERY GOOD WINE. It is so much fun to listen to the different comments!!!! ( mine included)

 I will pair the wines with some Italian delicatezze ( Tapas)  (we are not cooking together this time) and provide the usual everything from the FOOD, WINE, WINE GLASSES, to pots, pans, tables, chairs, flatware, plates, table linens, utensils………..bla,bla…… . We will seat inside on just one long table, chatting , laughing, drinking, eating and who knows. Please, as usual, help me clean up. I will post the menu later when I know exactly the wines we will have.

The cost is $ 36.00  per person and includes everything. Prepayment is required and, in case of cancellation, the prepayment will be applied to the next event ( already happened don't worry). You can send me a check ( in that case email me for the address) or you can pay online on my website  http://www.lvitaly.com/id5.html .The Meetup is open to 24 people and the location is my home in Lafayette. I will email the attendees the address later. We are starting earlier this time, 5 pm. For any question or concern, email me or call me @[masked]-2703.

 Menu

Pate' di Cannellini with Sicilian oregano and rose petals

Rosemary polenta mignonettes with organic black garlic and shaved goat gouda

Baked pasta with besciamella sauce, mushrooms and porcini, Parmigiano

Chocolate delizie

    Ciao Fun Keith, cancelling 6 hours prior the event, after I sent at least 4 emails regarding attending and prepayment, it is not very polite. Tables, plates , food preparation, cooking, expenses, etc...was also based on your attendance. Fortunately, not very many people cancel few hours prior the events.
    Ciao, Valerio Castellano

    Dear Lovers, I have to do something that I don't particularly like ( you know that):
    please send the prepayment of $ 36.00 either with a check made to Valerio Castellano 412 Arbor drive Lafayette CO 80026 or online on my website www.lvitaly.com
    I posted this event also on Facebook and I probably will send an email to my customers, so, I will count as confirmed ,only the attendees with a prepayment. As you can imagine, I don't want to be in a situation where people cancel at the last minute ( always happens) and I responded sold out to one of my customers or friend on Fb. I remind you, in case of cancellation, you will not loose your $ 36.00 but your payment will be applied to the next event.
    Let me know when you send a check so I can put you in the confirmed list.
    Thank you for understanding, at least I hope that ,
    baci , Valerio Castellano

    Valerio: I'm in, although not much of a wine drinker (go figure right) happy to enjoy such a great evening meeting new friends, if it is anything like New Years Eve party - it will be another great event
