“Best of Italy” Italian Wine Dinner - Houston, Texas

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Houston, Texas

Hawthorn Restaurant
3200 Kirby Drive
Houston, Texas 77098

Cost: $120 per person

The wines of Italy represent some the very best – and most difficult to understand – in the world. Although many of us feel comfortable with Chianti, the wines of Sardegna, Barolo, and Franciacorta may not land on our dinner tables quite as often. On Wednesday, March 20 2013, Hawthorn Restaurant uncorks the best of Italy, paired with the Italian culinary roots of Chef Riccardo Palazzo-Giorgio. And did we mention we are going to have Annamarie Clemente Franciacorta? Salute!
