Join Babbo on Monday April 21, 2014 as we showcase the wines of Italy’s greatest stewards of the land. In honor of Earth Day, Babbo has selected seven growers who work tirelessly to protect the earth and produce the best wine possible. Each wine will be paired with a dish that celebrates the freshest local and sustainable ingredients and the idea that those who respect the Earth produce more flavor and delicious products.

WHAT IS VINTAGE BABBO?
On select Monday evenings, we invite Italian wine lovers to join us for a special tasting menu paired with the best vintage wines from the depths of our cellar. Unlike many restaurant wine dinners, these are not distributor-sponsored events featuring “current-release” wines. The allure of Vintage Babbo is that it’s a personal expression of the restaurant; an opportunity for us to dig deep into our cellar (as much as it may sometimes hurt to see these wines leave); and an excuse to share the best of the best with our customers.
