Portofino Wine Tasting Series

Buckhead’s Italian-American gem, Portofino, will continue its popular wine tasting series in 2016. Every third Sunday of the month, Portofino invites guests to gather in the restaurant’s private wine cellar for a private tasting and lesson led by wine expert Michael Gallant.

Each tasting will focus on a different theme, ranging from sparkling wines, rosés and Rhone varietals, and will feature 12 carefully selected wines presented in four flights. Executive chef Matt Marcus will provide light appetizers, expertly paired with each flight. Portofino’s wine tastings range from $35 to $55, including tax and gratuity, and begin promptly at 6:30 p.m.

“We’re excited to bring back our monthly wine tasting series in 2016,” says Mike Anderson, owner of Portofino. “Since opening 15 years ago, Portofino has been committed to pouring a quality selection of unique wines, which has inspired our team to host these tastings and educate guests about different grape varieties, regions and tasting notes in an intimate setting.”
