Wine Wednesday: Simcic @ Lugano


On Monday, May 7, at 6:30 p.m., owner-chef Greg Neville and his team will host a unique wine dinner at Lugano restaurant, featuring Simcic wines and winemaker Marjan Simcic. ---

Simcic’s vineyards straddle the Italy/Slovenia border, with half being in Italy and half in Slovenia, about 90 minutes from Venice by car. The fifth-generation winemaker is one of the hottest wine producers in Europe, and his wines are stunning. Although he’s known mostly for whites, one wine critic called Simcic Pinot Noir Selekcija “the best red wine of the Old World.” All of Simcic’s wines are organic — the grapes untouched by anything much more than water and sun.

The cost per person for the Simcin wine dinner is: five-food course for $49; four optional wine pairings for $29. To RSVP, call Lugano at 801-412-9994.
