In wine world lingo, “old world” refers to the esteemed European regions of France, Italy and Spain. These lands go about making wines in more traditional ways that were established hundreds of years ago. They only grow certain grapes in certain areas, they name the wines after regions instead of grapes, and they take pride in using older methods to produce their wines. So tonight we pay homage and toast to their “old world” charm. Reservations to join us are appreciated and can be made by calling or clicking 813-879-2931.
