Max Lunch Club – January 29, 2021 – Classical Italy

Max Fish is pleased to announce the next installment of

The Friday Lunch Club

featuring

Classical Wines from Italy

Italy is a massive wine producing country with exceptional wines from just about everywhere – leaving us with almost boundless opportunity for discoveries. It is also a favorite wine destination for American consumers; we like Italian wine and food. Diving a little deeper into that wine culture this month brings us some discoveries from places not often visited, even though they are quite within reach of the typical stops. Marche, Friuli, Langhe and the Maremma in lower Tuscany are each places of tremendous wine production, but you have to know a little to find the good stuff. This month we have done the work for you and have a great selection of classical wines from just off the beaten path.

Join us as we kick off the new year with a great Italian focused lunch pairing showcasing regional wines from Italy with Chef Nick Stinziani’s menu.

Hosted by Brian Mitchell – Max Restaurant Group’s Sommelier

And as always, we will be spaced out and socially distanced for this luncheon.
