Saturday lunch with Francesca Vajra

Saturday, September 24

Lunch begins at noon {Limited seating}

$40 per person + tax and gratuity

We are delighted to welcome the daughter of Aldo Vajra, who established G.D. Vajra winery in 1972, for a winemaker lunch at Spinasse.

Francesca will be making her annual pilgrimage to Seattle sharing her delicious wines from Piedmont and we’ll be pouring some of our favorites.

Chef Stuart will craft 3 courses to accompany the wines: a Chicory salad with Barolo vinegar and hazelnuts, Gnocchi with porcini and Milk-braised pork.
