Best of Italy Wine Dinner – August 12
Please join us on when we welcome back Stan “the Wine Man” Lalic as he presents another chapter of his “Best of Italy” Wine Dinner Series. Stan does not need much of an introduction to most of our guests. He travels to Italy several times a year, consults for many small Italian producers and imports wines that might otherwise never be tasted in the United States. He has numerous clients that identify with his palate and he sells his wines to some of the best restaurants in the United States. Stan does events at The Carlton each year and we are excited about this particular lineup with two wines rated “95” points and five wines that together have received the prestigious “Tre Bicchieri Award” – equivalent of a 95-100 point rating – a total of 29 times!
