Best of Italy Wine Dinner – Tonight!

Posted on

Tonight is our first Wine Dinner of 2011 and it’s a very special one as we welcome Stan the Wine Man Lalic to The Carlton for his 30th Best of Italy Wine Dinner! Thirty Wine Dinners in our 26 years is pretty special stuff!  Stan has been a valued partner and is a Pittsburgh treasure!  His exceptional palate enables him to find, and in many cases help style, wonderful small production Italian selections! All of the wines for this dinner are rated higher than 92 points! Hope to see you tonight!
