Venetian Wine Dinner

Join us for an evening of fine dining and fine wine as Head Sommelier, Lionel teaches you everything you need to know about the Veneto region

The Veneto is the 8th largest region of Italy. It’s situated in the northeast of the country, and bordered to the west by Lombardia and to the south by Emilia-Romagna. The Veneto forms a large overlapping zone known as the Triveneto forming the largest wine producing region in the country. With fruity red Valpolicella complementing its intense Amarone and sweet Recioto counterparts, Veneto is armed with a formidable portfolio of red wines to go with its refreshing whites, such as Soave and sparkling Prosecco.
