Taste & Learn Wine Pairing Series

Guests at the Jan. 25 Taste & Learn event will taste four wines from Sardinia and Sicily specially selected by the presenting sommelier. Each wine will be accompanied by a small-bite pairing prepared by Executive Chef Mimmo Ferraro. The sommelier will discuss the origin, contents and wine-making process of each vintage, while Chef Mimmo will provide details about each of the food pairings he prepared to complement them.
 
The menu follows:

Pala Vermentino di Sardegna paired with seared scallop with light pesto topped with pine nuts
Pala Cannonau di Sardegna paired with sausage and cannellini bean ragu with grilled crostini
Kuntari Nero D’Avolo paired with ravioli filled with lamb, pine nuts and raisins served with mushroom sauce
