Another edition of the Wine Maker’s Dinner hosted by Per Bacco Ristorante is upon us.

On Thursday, April 22, 2010 (Earth Day), Per Bacco will host a 6-course dinner with exclusive wine pairings from Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery for only $65 per person.

Please contact Per Bacco to make your reservations. If this session of the Wine Maker’s Dinner is anything like their previous ones, you will not be left disappointed and will probably be talking about the meal long after the event.
