IL CARNEVALE DI BABBO: A Wine Dinner Featuring the Food and Wine of Veneto

There is no place like Carnevale in Veneto. To celebrate this famed region and special time of year, Babbo takes you from the coast with seafood marinated in the traditional method known as “saor” to the mountains where slow-cooked meats also soar to culinary heights. Polenta, bigoli, radicchio and crostoli reign supreme here and are matched perfectly with the vinicultural region we are proud to showcase, Valpolicella. From zesty garganega to international varietals to the well-known variations of wine that are produced from the trio of grapes Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara (ripasso! recioto!), the wines of Valpolicella are as diverse as the region itself. So, grab a mask, grab a glass and enjoy the five-course tasting dinner our Chef and Wine Director have prepared for you!
