I am Simone Russo, a professional sommellier from Italy with 7+ years of experience as Sommellier at Ritz Carlton, Shangri La in Europe and Asia, certified by AIS / WSA since 2012, and recently moved to New York working for a 5 star restaurant.
I am organizing a wine tasting private event with 36 spots, 18F / 18M for young professionals, with 7 bottles of less known and still niche Italian wines in a casual and relaxed atmosphere and free flow of bread, cheese and salumi with combination recommendations.

Here the details of the event:
- Location: Boqueria Flatiron, 53 West 19th Street - Time: 7pm - Price: 34$ / Person (wine and food included), to be paid at the start. - Free flow of bread, cheese and salumi - 36 spots, ideally 18F, 18M - No Dress Code - RSVP strictly required for me and the venue
