Join Pappas Bros. Houston for our Italian Wine Throwdown: Piedmont vs. Tuscany Tasting on Friday, April 11th at 5:30 pm. Wine drinkers and lovers of Italian wines continue to ask the age-old question of, "which Italian wine region is King?" You be the judge as you taste ethereal Nebbiolo from the Piedmont versus rustic Sangiovese from Tuscany. We will showcase classic sub-regions such as Barolo, Barbaresco, and Brunello di Montalcino as well as some delicious Barbera, Dolcetto, and Super Tuscans. It will be one of the only times to taste so many iconic producers from great vintages. Come discover what makes these two wine regions so special and help settle the debate over which one is better.
