From del Posto to Marea to tiny neighborhood Italian trattorias - New York has the best selection of Italian restaurants outside Italy. New York has had a sizeable Italian population for over 100 years and the food has been part and parcel of New York City life since then. The wine followed, and although fine wine lists are a much more recent phenomenon, some of our favorite NY restaurants now boast Italian wine lists almost too heavy to lift.
And then there are the wine bars - another place where you'll want to have an understanding of what you are ordering.
So - get comfortable with ordering wine from any Italian wine list, from a simple one-page list to all the sub-regions of Italy.
Learn how to find your way around the different regions, grape varietals, and types of Italian wine.
What questions should you ask the sommelier?
What about vintages?How do you go about choosing a wine that will match the food of everyone at the table? We'll provide samplings of Italian dishes so you can taste the different wines with food too.
Vince has a knack for making things interesting and fun. Join us on the 22nd and we promise you'll walk out wanting to make a reservation at a restaurant or bar with a serious Italian wine list!
