Degustation dinner with Tuscan dishes & complimentary Tuscan wines

Tantalise your tastebuds with the tastes of Tuscany at Cortina Restaurant’s delicious degustation dinner on the 26th of May.

The Tuscan Association of Queensland together with Italian chef, Vittorio Greco and his wife Barbara, will present a mouth-watering four-course dinner accompanied with varying and complementary Tuscan wines.

Chianti is synonymous with the region of Tuscany, which produces quality red wines known & loved around the world. The region’s native grape, the sangiovese, dates back 3,000 years to the ancient Etruscans and produces an elegant wine with forceful aromas. This grape now produces arguably Italy’s most expensive wine: Brunello di Montalcino.
Don’t miss your chance to dine like a true a Tuscan!
