Monthly Wine Dinner at Tango
Tango Contemporary Cafe's "Third Tuesday at Tango" wine pairing dinner this month will feature wines from the Villa Maria Winery in New Zealand.
As a special treat, Villa Maria Winery owner and managing director, Sir George Fistonich, will be available in the restaurant that night offering guests an opportunity to meet and greet this celebrated winemaker.
Villa Maria Winery was founded in 1961 by George Fistonich who, through his dedication to quality, has led Villa Maria to become the New Zealand wine icon it is today.
Passionate from a young age, wine was a central part of his upbringing. “Being Croatian, wine is part of my blood,” says Fistonich. "It’s always been a part of life and I’m pleased to have spent my career pursuing this life-long passion."
