Wine dinners have become increasingly popular in Louisville over the past few months, mostly because they're fun and because the chefs get a great deal of room for creativity, which makes each one exciting and unique. Also, they are an incredible marketing tool for wineries looking to connect with potential customers. 
If you haven't been able to attend a wine dinner around town yet, I recommend starting at Varanese on Tuesday, April 23rd, at 6:30 PM with their Alta Vista wine dinner! Richard Wethington, the District Manager for Republic National Beverage Company, will be the guest speaker, and each of the 6 courses will be lovingly prepared by Louisville's culinary star, Chef John Varanese, and his highly skilled team.

Scallop Ceviche with Sour Orange-Lime Marmalade, Blood Orange Fluid Gel,
