Wine In The Attic (Oct 25)

Join us for a wine event in Soffitta. Friend and sommelier, April, and Mary Kay (owner and executive chef) welcome Alessandra Quarto visiting from Italy and her family winery. We’ll eat, drink, and talk wine, food and pairings. I’m pretty happy to be out of the basement kitchen and talking with guests, in our beautiful “attic”, with people who love Italian food.
