On Tuesday, March 4, please join us as Stan “The Wine Man” Lalic hosts a special Best of Italy “Barolo Smackdown.”
If you cannot be in New Orleans, comparing and contrasting six Barolos and a white Nebbiolo while tasting Simon’s creations seems like the perfect way to spend “Fat Tuesday!”
This is Stan’s 38th Wine Dinner at The Carlton! Stan travels to Italy several times a year seeking out quality small producers and bringing their gems to this country.
Frequently, he works with the producers and helps to style the wine and design the label. Please join us for this Pre-Lenten dinner that is sure to please! Click here to view the menu. Call 412.391.4152 to reserve today.
