Feast Your Eyes on This Recap of Bells Up’s First Winemaker Dinner at Agrivino

On Friday, September 14, Bells Up was the featured winery at a sumptuous, five-course traditional Italian Winemaker’s Dinner prepared by Chef Dario Pisoni at Agrivino in Carlton and attended by 46 guests—a sell out. The amazing meal featured wine pairings from us with original creations by Chef Dario. Both Chef Dario and Winemaker Dave presented each course with an explanation of the inspiration behind each pairing. If you think the menu sounds good, wait until you see the photos…
