Degustazione dei Vini alla casa dei Del Conte - Wine Tasting at Del Conte Home

  • May 10, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • Bee & Garry's

Instead of our May Aperitivo and Cena, join us for a Degustazione dei Vini!

This month, we're doing things a bit differently! Instead of having our monthly dinner at a restaurant, we're going to have a global wine tasting at the home of Bee and Garry Del Conte!

Here's how it works:

Bring a bottle of wine from one of the countries listed below and a dish to pair with it – then just let us know what country you choose by commenting when you RSVP on the Meetup site!

You can choose from Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, USA, Argentina, Chile and Australia

If you need help with ideas for pairing your wine and food, check out the following links

http://www.foodandwinepairing.org

Be prepared to tell us a little about your wine -- maybe even prepare a short paragraph on it -- and be sure to bring everything you need to serve your accompanying dish. We will provide glasses for wine.

If you have any questions at all, just reach out to Gretchen or Bee!

    Looks like Russia is backing down for now. Therefore , we are going with New Zealand!! Its a 2013 SPY VALLEY Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough Region which we are pairing with New Zealand shrimp in a garlic, anchovy and mint dressing. I am making this up as I go along so no worries.
