Puglia Wine Dinner with Pietraventosa Winery

Date: Fri, May 3rd 2019

Help us kick off our "Maker's May" event where we highlight visiting winemaker's from around Italy, as we welcome back to Via Umbria the winemakers of Pietraventosa Winery from the heart of Puglia. These legendary winemakers will be teaming up with our Executive Chef, Liam LaCivita, to create a masterful menu that celebrates not only the unique flavors of the heel region of Italy, but also perfectly compliment the delicate flavors of the Pietraventosa wines, which will create an unforgettable dining and drinking experience. Chef Liam and the winemakers will join you at the table at every course for a description of each dish–feel free to ask questions. Each Dinner at Via Umbria is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the things we value here: great food, great wine, great people!
