Paradiso is serving up a flight of three Sicilian wines during their “Drinking Italy” event tonight at 6:30 pm. The featured wines are each being served alongside a savory dish by chef Lynn Rinaldi.
Y’all really know a good thing when you see it, eh? Two weeks ago, when I posted about the new Run the Vineyards 3.2.1. Challenge coming to Kutztown’s Blair Vineyards on July 13th—a race that combines a yoga session with an obstacle course and wine-tasting at the finish line—our readers pretty much went bananas. In fact, I ran into race director Ken Culbertson at an event last night and he said the Challenge, a first-time event for his race management company, Good Day for a Run, sold out in 10 days. Now that’s impressive people.
Starting this Thursday, September 20th and continuing every week, Chez Georges at Le Bec Fin will be holding a series of wine tastings for just $40 a person. Head sommelier Philippe Sauriat will choose a new set of wines based around a theme each week while chef Walter Abrams will prepare canapes to pair with the wines.
This week’s theme is old versus new world Syrah and Sauriat will be on hand to educate his guests on the 4-6 wines that they will be tasting. The tasting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Sub $100 cost-certainty at Le Be Fin, we’ll be checking it out.
To get in on the action call 215-567-1000.
