Special Pre-Valentine’s Day Wine Dinner – February 13

Posted on

Iberian PeninsulaPlease join us on Thursday, February 13 when we welcome Joe Barsotti for a special Pre-Valentine’s Day Wine Dinner featuring outstanding wines from the Iberian Peninsula!

Joe is a Pittsburgh guy that spent years toiling in the Wine industry working for others, before he listened to his entrepreneurial spirit and decided to try it on his own.

He had built up solid relationships in the industry but it was still a major risk – as many wineries are more comfortable having large companies represent them in Pennsylvania.

Today, Joe is President and CEO of a growing company that represents wineries from all over the world! Joe’s Pre-Valentine’s Day wine dinner shines a spotlight on the interesting and full bodied flavors from Spain and Portugal!

Wine education is a lifelong pursuit and you will be happy to taste these selections paired with Chef Simon’s creations! Call 412.391.4152 to make your reservations today! Click here to view the menu.
