Wine dinner

Alba Restaurant and Wine Bar will feature the Italian region of Liguria at its next monthly wine dinner.

The four-course dinner, which includes wine pairings, will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 18, and costs $55 per person.

The aim of the dinner, according to General Manager Matthew Feldman, is to capture the dining experience of Liguria and allow guests to understand how wines and foods from particular regions pair together.

Each course is presented by Chef Alexander Feldman, and wine is poured and presented at the table for each course.

Alba has also partnered with the liquor store Bottles to provide guests the opportunity to purchase the wines at a discounted price.
