Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar continues to bring a taste of summer to the table through its unique Taste & Learn events.

Guests will then enjoy a Barbaresco from the Langhe region of Piemonte, where rolling hills have been covered with vineyards for hundreds of years. Followed by a truly remarkable Venetian Cabernet Sauvignon and concluding with a Rosso from the Lazio region, which has been a wine center since Roman times.
