Olio’s February wine dinner is set for Friday, February 4th, 6PM. $30/pp, including tax but not gratuity.
For those of you who have never been, our wine dinners are different than many you may have attended. Keeping in synch with our casual style, they feature a laid back feel more like a dinner party at a friend’s house than a stuffy fine dining event, complete with family style service. Many of our regulars met some of their closest friends at our dinners, simply by having been seated at the same table.
Not only does this approach make our guests feel more at ease, but it also allows us to keep service costs down, thereby focusing on the quality of our food and wine. You’ll be hard pressed to find another four course wine dinner in town for $30 including tax!
This month we’ll welcome Matthew Leader, an associate at locally owned wine distributor Country Vintner, and a true pioneer on the Richmond wine scene.
