Explore the Wines of Italy
Sunday, April 2, 2023See More Register
You are invited to join the Washington, D.C. Bailliage for our first Mondiale event of 2023 – an exploration of the wines of Italy. Here’s how it works:
Each attendee brings a bottle of wine from Italy – red, white, rosé, still, sparkling – it’s your choice. We’ll put the wines into unmarked bags and then everyone will taste each wine and make notes on their impressions, such as nose, palate, and overall quality. Lupo Verde will provide light food (appetizer, entrée, and dessert served family style) to accompany our oenological discoveries.
After the tastings, we’ll vote on our favorites, and finally reveal each wine. Each participant may have the opportunity to briefly share information about the wine they brought and why they chose it, such as the producer, year, grape variety, and price point, as well as what distinguishes their wine– an interesting winemaker or history of the winery, notable locale or terroir, or perhaps how you discovered it. Certified Sommelier Chevalier Marc Mancher will guide our discussion.
It promises to be a delicious, fun, and educational afternoon with fellow fans of Italian wines!America/New_York Explore the Wines of Italy

Join the Bailliage of Greater Washington as we gather to enjoy a spectacular feast prepared by Chef Javier Fernandez. Known as Kinamot, this elaborate meal is served on a bed of banana leaves and white rice and is typically eaten with your hands! It is a communal food experience which embodies the “food is love” ethos of the Philippines. Chef Fernandez will join us to discuss his cuisine and answer your questions. The feast will be paired with authentic Filipino beer and desserts from Gwenie’s Pastries, owned by the chef’s sister.
