We've teamed up with our good friends Matteo and Luca from Passione Vino wine shop and outstanding bar in Shoreditch, East London to pair three fantastic Calabrian wines to a menu that showcases the region on Thursday 29th August.
Passione Vino was born on 1st August 2003 with the aim of discovering & shouting about small, independent Italian artisan winemakers.
They've selected three fantastic wines to pair with our menu (plus a Bergamot liquer for dessert) - which sees us continue our journey around Italy with a visit to the Calabria, the southernmost spot of the mainland, the sun-kissed tip of the 'boot' and home to the wonderful fiery 'nduja which sits centre stage on the menu...
