Friuli-Venezia Giulia—where ancient cultures blend into world-class wines. Enter to win tickets to The Tastes of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, a four-day celebration October 21st, 27th, 28th, and 29th at the San Francisco Italian Athletic Club.
Friuli, a vibrant region, is an amalgam of the best of many cultures’ influences. Bordering Austria and Slovenia, its cuisine reveals more than a hint of Slavic influence. The result is a mixed cuisine where hearty mountain dishes meet Mediterranean plates; where Latin meets Germanic and Slavic; where Italy meets her neighbors.
Explore this hidden region of Italy during our four-day series at the SFIAC.
There will be two winners: one will win a pair of tickets to the movie premiere, and the other will win a pair of tickets to the wine pairing dinner! To ENTER TO WIN, all you need to do is visit this post on Instagram!
The two lucky winners will be contacted after the contest ends on Tuesday October 12th (at 10am PT), so don’t delay! You can also get your tickets now if you don’t want to take your chances.
