Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar will partner with Franco Wine Imports for its next unique Taste & Learn event to bring quality, small production and handcrafted Italian wines to Las Vegas on Saturday, Aug. 25, at 6 p.m.
Owner Gino Ferraro invites guests to experience some of Italy’s best family vineyards featuring traditional and lesser-known grapes loved for centuries in the villages of Italy. Throughout the evening, guests will be taken on a journey sampling exclusive wines served along perfectly paired small plates created by Executive Chef Francesco DiCaudo.
