2015 Food Show Menu Inspired by Fabio Viviani

Chef Fabio Viviani’s “Italian Classics” inspired dinner featuring the highest quality ingredients and authentic techniques paired with his labeled wines.
Wine is not complicated. I focus all of my time and energy on finding the best fruit and using the best winemaking practices. I do not need to use shiny labels, heavy glass bottles or fancy gimmicks to make my wine stand out. Give it a try and it will speak for itself.
