Stanza Italian Bistro and Wine Bar invites you to “Flight & Bite,” an evening of wine tasting perfectly paired with their signature cuisine. On the first Wednesday of every month from 5-7 p.m., wine educator and sommelier Jimmy Santangelo chooses unique wines and educates participants on the notes and nuances. The next event will be held November 2 and will feature Palmina Arneis ‘the little rascal’‘ from California and Vietti Barbera d’Asti ‘tre vigne’ from Asti, Italy. The bottles are brought into the state by special order and served with “bites,” perfectly created to compliment the wines. Become the envy of your next dinner party with your new pairing knowledge and maybe even pick up a flight of your favorite wine during the evening, all while enjoying some of the best food and drink you can find in the Salt Lake Valley.
“With over 30 wines available by the glass of mostly Italian selections, this is a great way for our diners to be a little adventurous and to try some of these amazing wines we are special ordering,” says Santangelo. “Plus, if people can’t join me at the bar on the first Wednesday of each month, these special order wines will be available at Stanza throughout the month, while our supply lasts.”
December’s event will put you in the holiday spirit with a “Flight & Bite” event titled “Not Your Mama’s Prosecco.” For $16, patrons get all the best Prosecco that the region can provide. Flights of all the wines chosen can be purchased throughout the month if you miss out on “Flight & Bite” night, which make the perfect holiday gift.
