Embrace Winter with an Alpine Feast
Join us on Wednesday, December 6 for a festive celebration of Italy’s rugged and stupendous Trentino-Alto Adige. Paolo leaves his native Tuscany behind to share the joy of our favorite family vacation destination—but it’s not that much of a stretch when you consider that his ancestors hail from the Mugello region, north of Florence, an area dominated by the Apuan Alps. The inimitable and amiable Bruce Bauer of Vino Wine Shop in Southeast Portland will pair wines from the region in what promises to be a truly special evening of camaraderie and unique Italianality. This’ll be a rich, stick-to-your-ribs, hunker-down-for-the-long-cold- winter sort of affair, so a brisk clamber over Mt Tabor or a few hours chopping wood beforehand is recommended.
