Next Monday, April 20th, Franck's restaurant in Holladay will host a very special wine dinner featuring the Italian wines of Scarbolo Winery, which produces some of the finest wines from the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region of Italy.
On hand for the wine pairing dinner will be winemaker Valter Scarbolo and Italian wine expert and importer, Marco Stevanoni. According to Valter Scarbolo, he "acquired his passion for wine making from his father, Gino."
In addition to fine Italian wines, chefs Robert Perkins and Adam Vickers have created a four course menu to be paired with four Scarbolo wines. The menu and pairings are as follows:
