On Monday June 9th, ~54 MINT~ is hosting a dinner celebrating the wines of Montefalco, in Italy’s Umbria region. Eight wine producers from the area will be in attendance, pouring wines to pair with a four-course meal of Umbrian dishes. The menu hasn’t been finalized, but it will definitely include summer truffles. The region’s signature sagrantino passito, a thick, aged wine, will also be served. Reservations, which are highly recommended, are available between 5:30pm-10pm. The dinner costs $110 per person, including wine and food but not tax and gratuity.
Over in Oakland, Mick Unti of Unti Vineyards will be at ~COMAL~ on Tuesday June 3rd. He’ll be pouring wines to pair with five courses from chef Matt Gandin, and talking about Unti wines and their winemaking process. The menu and tickets can be found here, and the dinner costs $100 per person, including all food, beverages, tax, and gratuity.
