Join us for our Wine Education Series

Tuesdays @ 6:30 starting 3/19 through 5/21

Come take a wine-tasting journey through the hills and valleys of Italy’s wine regions and those of neighboring areas. In each of eight delicious hour-long sessions, Ben Zemmel will call on his ten years of immersive experience in enology (the science and study of wines and winemaking) to guide you through the characteristics of each region’s wines. And you’ll enjoy small bites paired with each wine.

Head to the link in our profile for our website with all the details.

DATE NIGHT? WHY NOT!
.
It can still be date night—just at home. Put down your devices. Set the table. Open the wine. Plate your dinners. Enjoy!
.
Because we want you to have the full Alforno experience even when you eat at home, our dinners come with focaccia, olives and Alforno's famous bread. Add a salad and a nice bottle of wine (we have the Scaia Rosso on special this weekend) and you'll have a lovely dining experience.
