Lunch and Dinner with the Winemaker 2022

For those who want something more than just a snack, "Dinner or Lunch with the Winemaker" is a perfect opportunity to satisfy the most demanding wine lovers and gourmets. Delicious food, traditional menus and specialities paired with excellent wines produced in the region will be the protagonists of the many dinners organised on Saturday 28 May (the dinners) or Sunday 29 May (the lunches) in many restaurants, farm restaurants and wineries throughout Friuli Venezia Giulia.

All the dinners (reservation required) will be presented by the winemakers who will chat with guests about their wines and how they paired them with food.
