Taste with Piero Mastroberardino and me on Tuesday, Gianluca Garofoli and me on Thursday in Houston.

Call me a “kid in a candy store.”

Tomorrow night, I’ll be welcoming one of Italy’s greatest winemakers, Piero Mastroberardino (above), for a virtual wine tasting of three of his family’s wines, including the Greco di Tufo Nova Serra — one of my favorite Italian whites.

And then on Thursday, we’ll be joined by Gianluca Garofoli whose family produces another one of my all-time favorite Italian white wines, the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Podium.

Both events are hosted by Roma restaurant in Houston, my client.

For Piero’s virtual wine tasting event, $119 sends you home with three bottles of wine — the Greco, the red Lacryma Christi, and the Taurasi Radici — and light bites from Chef Angelo.

For Gianluca’s virtual wine dinner event, $119 sends you home with three bottles of wine, including the Podium, and a traditional Marche menu for two. Chef Angelo is from Marche so this is a special one for him.

Chef, you had me at “homemade passatelli with mushrooms”!

Please just shoot me an email if you’d like to attend either virtual event (in the comfort of your own home!).

Why is there a photograph of a bee at following this message? Join us Thursday to find out! Thank you for supporting local businesses, including my own, by eating great Italian food and drinking great Italian wines with the people who produce and love them.
