Bursting with Italian Bubbles
Tue, 2 May 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM MDT
It’s no secret that the Italians have a fondness for bubbles and the world has an illustrious love-affair with Prosecco. Join us for this aperitivo of Italy's scintillating sparklers from her most popular export to the hunger-inducing, palate-cleansing frothy red Lambrusco family. This seminar comes with a money back guarantee to put a smile on your face.
