Portugal: it’s more than Port

Located in the heart of downtown Detroit, The Statler French American Bistro promises a stroll through the vineyards of Europe with its monthly Passport to Wine Series. Attendees will experience some of the world’s most iconic winemaking regions via glass and plate. The tasting event features three courses prepared by Executive Chef Vince Brady and wine pairings selected by Joe Vicari Restaurant Group sommelier, Lisa Ribaudo. June’s stop, focusing on Portugal, is themed “It’s More Than Port,” and takes place on Wednesday, June 19, at 6:30 p.m. The table wines and diverse diets of Portugal take center stage at this three-course pairing dinner.
