Join us for our Annual ‘VS.’ Wine Dinner. This year we will be comparing wines from Spain and Italy, both having a long history in the wine business with an ever-evolving debate of who reigns supreme. Each course will have pairings from each country with similar characteristics, but coming from different regions that achieve quality and finesse.
