Calling all carnivores! Vino presents a slice of (Italian) life
Like love and marriage (or a horse and carriage), red meat and red wine go together with a predictability which can almost be taken for granted. It may seem an obvious combination, and it is, which is why carne e vino is one of the classic simple pleasures of Italian daily life.
This term Vino is directing the focus of its popular wine classes towards the pairing of wine and food, and we are excited to present a brand new addition to our schedule, Red Meat & Red Wine. On February 11, join Jim Hutchinson, a man who has cooked and made wine for a living in Italy, for this unprecedented tasting seminar. Class participants will taste six different wines, specifically selected by Jim’s expert hand to be paired with six different red meat dishes, each prepared by I Trulli chef Patti Jackson.
When it comes to the preparation and consumption of red meat, Italy boasts an endless variety of styles to suit every kind of carnivore. You’ll try six of our favorites, from cured prosciutto San Daniele to braised costolette (short rib). Put them to the taste test with great Italian wines and enjoy a unique chance to chew the fat with a true advocate of Italy’s vast culinary heritage.
