Italian Wine 101 Bootcamp
Wine Director and Sommelier, Bryan Lamorena
For Course 3 in our Wine 101 series, frame’s resident wine director and sommelier Bryan Lamorena devotes two evenings dedicated to Italian wines.
Italy boasts over 300 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?
In this 2 hour introductory class on Italian wines, you’ll learn about the unique history of Italy and its wines. From the cool reaches of the Alps to the windblown island of Sicily, discover the diversity of what Italian grapes have to offer. All the while snacking on cheese and charcuterie boards.
May 16th at 6:30 pm
July 11th at 6:30 pm

“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.”
