Women’s Wine & Cheese Tasting Event

Thursday, 24 January 2019, 6:30 PM – 10:00 PM | $100 + Taxes

Join Tuscan wine producer / Cucinato partner Gaia Massai for the next in her series of all-female wine tasting events! Each event features different wines from Italy’s many regions and grape varietals, with food pairings by chef Deborah Verginella, chief culinary officer at Caplan’s Miele Gallery.

Gaia’s co-host for the evening will be Christina Kalcevich, a fourth generation fine food importer and co-owner of the iconic Pasquale Brothers. The two will collaborate on a selection of wines and cheeses that will be featured throughout the evening.

As always it will be a light, fun and interactive affair. Gaia and Christina will tell you about the wine and cheeses they’ve selected and Deborah will explain how she incorporated them into the tasting menu. But there will be no long lectures and plenty of time for mingling, catching up with old friends and making new ones, while sampling the delicious offerings our hosts have selected!
