Ruffino Wine Dinner w/ Chef Alec Schuler of Tangerine & Arugula

January 26, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Chef/Proprietor Alec Schuler & the Tangerine Teams bring you another one of our fabulous Wine Dinners!!!*

Background on Ruffino Wine:
Established near Florence in 1877 by cousins Ilario and Leopoldo Ruffino, and winning international awards since the 1880’s, these wines express the history and heritage of Italy. The three red wines we selected are from the heart of Ruffino, Tuscany. One classic and two showing great contemporary flair with high percentages of international varietals. Ruffino has expanded their reach throughout Italy, displayed in our white and rose selections, which are from Friuli and Veneto regions. Experts from RNDC wine distributors will be on hand to educate, inform and lead guests through each wine.
