See and Do

Week of January 14th

Take a tour of Italy! Capo is hosting a special wine tasting on Wednesday night with an Italian wine tour fearing wines from Umani Ronchi! Enjoy six wines and six tasting dishes for just $40 and you can purchase your tickets here! This is not your typical, sit down, time consuming wine dinner but rather a walk around, fun and interactive experience where you’ll get a sample of all the offerings at your own pace poured by the wine professionals themselves. At the end you’ll learn what ‘grows together, goes together’ and the difference between Montepulciano aged in stainless steel and in oak barriques without all the uptightness of a sit down soirée. So grab a group of friends and wine down with Capo to ease your way into 2019! To sneak a peek at the menu visit here!
