We are going to repeat the extremely successful wine tasting event at PastaVino restaurant, this time choosing wines from the Campania region of Italy.
On March 13th we did an excellent tasting of Piedmont Wines at PastaVino, the year-old restaurant on west Pearl Street, and had a great response due to the wines, the sommelier present just for our group, and the excellent food provided. Here are a few of the comments:
This was a classy event - wonderful ambiance, good food, good wine and nice people. I would love to see more like this.
The availability of the sommelier added significantly to my understanding and enjoyment of the wines, and I very much appreciated the food that was well paired with the wine selections. It was a treat to taste and experience less well known wine varietals. I enjoyed the venue, and would definitely attend another similar event!
This was a great event. I appreciated the sommelier's wine knowledge -her descriptions of the wines, the grapes, her pairing suggestions, and her effort to educate us in general. The service was great, as well as the general setup at the table with the wines and the food !
The cost of the event is $15 at the door, which includes wines, some light Italian food, and tax but not a tip for the server. Wines will be from the Campania region in the southwest region of Italy around Naples - one white and two reds of the sommelier's choice.
This event is limited in size and we have to give a headcount to the restaurant in advance, so please don't be a No Show or cancel five minutes before the event starts!
