“Italian Wine Dinner” with Jean Francois of Monsieur Touton

Thursday February 22nd 2018

6.45pm Reception 7pm Dinner

Greetings from Cobalt Grille,
This month we venture back to one of our old favorites Italy!
For some reason we are taking the tour with a French guy…..Jean Francious Dechamps, but have no fear our Sommelier Arden Allen and Chef Alvin Williams will be close by to keep an eye on him!

Italy is like no other wine producing country on the planet as the range of grape varietals is mindboggling. This diversity of grapes and wine styles, combined with such extremely diverse micro climates and the highest percentage of architectural heritage on the planet, makes Italy utterly unique and a pleasure to visit. It is a country you go back to over and over, and for wine lovers the spectrum of new wines to explore is bewitching. Italy is shaped like a long boot and stretches nearly 1200 kilometers from the alpine mountains and alluring lakes of the north to the sun baked, captivating south. We are looking forward to sharing some of these awesome wines paired with delicious food with you.
