Italian Wine 101 Bootcamp
Wine Director and Sommelier, Bryan Lamorena

Just back from a 10-day wine research trip to the vineyards of Italy, our resident wine director and sommelier Bryan Lamorena brings us a hot-off-of the Alps, 2-hour wine education class on Italian wine.
Italy boasts over 3,000 unique grape varietals with as many distinct regions and producers.  It competes annually with France in wine production, exports, and sales.  So why do we know so little about it?  We may know Chianti and Barolo, but why are they so significant? Grab a seat, enrich you palette and discover the diversity of what Italy has to offer. Who doesn’t love a bowl of summer pasta and a great glass of wine. It may be due-time to host a July dinner party and wow your guests!

July 11th at 6:30 pm
$70 per person + tax and service fee

Each workshop is limited to 20 guests

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
