Dinner with Valter Scarbolo.
Monday March 8th. Five and Ten. 7:30. $80 per person.
Valter Scarbolo is one of our favorite people. His wines are as nice as he is.
We've done a few dinners with him before at the National, but this is the first time we'll be hosting him at Five and Ten. We thought we'd use the occasion to showcase a few of his higher-end offerings, particularly the My Time white and the Refosco red, both of which are fine examples of what noble things Friuli can produce.
Come meet Valter and see how good-hearted people make good-hearted wine.
