Featuring eight wines from the world-famous Zenato Winery

  • Thursday, June 13
  • 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
  • The Chefs’ House, 215 King St E

We are delighted to welcome esteemed Italian winemaker Alberto Zenato of Zenato Winery to Toronto for an exclusive winemaker’s dinner at The Chefs’ House.

A native of Lake Garda in the province of Verona in San Benedetto di Lugana, Alberto is a second-generation winemaker, following in the footsteps of his late father Sergio, who founded the winery in 1960. Exposed to the wine world from an early age, Alberto would follow Sergio up and down the rows of vines until his initial curiosity grew into a passion that has become his life’s work.

Over the past half-century, Zenato winery has established a solid reputation for high-quality wines made from the local grape, Trebbiano di Lugana, and today is a leader in the Veneto region, which has a long cultural and historical tradition in quality Italian winemaking.

The evening will feature eight of Zenato's wines, accompanied by a starting reception of canapés, and followed by a four-course banquet dinner.

Seatings are available online for $85 plus HST and Eventbrite processing fees.
