On Tuesday, April 10th and the second Tuesday of each month, Pepperoncini (184 Bridge Street; 484-924-8429) will continue their Italian Wine Dinner Series. Each wine dinner will focus on a different region of Italy and will be hosted by David Greenstein from The Wine Merchant.
"This month, we will focus on the Piedmont region. I love to do this region for it's grape and stylistic diversity," explains The Wine Merchant's David Greenstein. "You have sparkling, sweet frizzante, juicy red and whites and very bold and tannic red wines."
At 7:00pm on Tuesday, April 10th premium Barolo and Piedmont wines will be paired with Chef Paul DiBona's classic 5-course Italian menu. The cost is $65 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Call 484-924-8429 for reservations. A limited number of seats are available for these private dinners.
