An Italian Dinner - Tuesday, November 5, 2019

The Australian Wine Appreciation Society


An Italian Dinner

Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at 7:00 PM

The Italian Kitchen

860 Burrard Street, Vancouver

Members $149.00

In the past few years there has been a strong push in Australia to diversify vineyards with new and interesting grape varieties.  Many of these new varietals are of Italian origin.  Some of these interesting wines are now arriving on our shores for us to appreciate.  

We have searched the market recently and have found some great examples of Italian varietal wines being produced in Australia.  The best way to enjoy them is with a superb Italian menu!

What a treat this dinner will be!  We will enjoy a fantastic meal "a la Famiglia" style, with shared platters for each course at every table and great wines to match the food.

Due to venue capacity, this event will be limited to "Members Only".  If you haven't yet renewed your membership, you can easily do so online.  There is a link at our website for renewal.
