'Old World Charm' Special Seated Wine Seminar
The 'Old World' in wine circles refers to the heralded wine regions of France, Spain, Germany and Italy. They have been producing great wines for centuries more than we here in the 'New World', and have created classic blends and often-imitated styles of wine that we strive to equal or at least match. Tonight it is our pleasure to welcome our local Sommelier Celebrity Kevin Pelley to lead us through eight superb examples of his products from Europe's best vineyard spots. We will also offer our guests 3 courses of delicious bites from Tampa's own Vizcaya Restaurant. Reservations for this special evening are required by credit card in advance and can be made by calling (813) 879-2931.
