Tre Bicchieri Winemaker Dinner at D&J Bistro!

The Italians Are Coming!

 

Join us at the glimmering jewel of the Northwest suburbs, D & J Bistro, as we host some of our favorite Italian wine producers. They are in town briefly to celebrate their recent "Tre Bicchieri" awards given by Italy’s most prestigious wine authority, the Gambero Rosso!  Joining us will be Moreno Petrini from Tenuta di Valgiano, a singular biodynamic certified estate in Lucca, Tuscany - along with their nearly unmatched award track record over the last 20 years. Sergio Germano returns for the first time ever graced by his wife Elena! The Germano’s are one of the great, yet still shockingly under-appreciated, producers in Serralunga, Barolo. They’re also fanatical about their traditional method sparkling wines!  We’re sure to try a few more Tre Bicchieri award-winning wines while we’re at it, joined by the importer that brings these amazing artisanal producers to our market. All to be paired by a sensational 5-course menu by Chef Masato and overseen by Stephane’s lovely team. A night not to be missed!

 

WHEN: Tuesday, February 26th, 6:30PMWHERE: D&J Bistro, 466 S Rand Rd, Lake ZurichCOST: $99 including tax and gratuity
