Wine Dinner at Primo Italia

Primo Italia Restaurant in Torrance, CA, was the site of Vineyard {511}'s recent wine dinner. Primo is a classy Italian restaurant in the South Bay of Los Angeles and where we served our 2018 Napa/Carneros Chardonnay, our 2017 Napa/Carneros Pinot Noir and our 2009, 2012, and 2014 Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon, all paired with a delicious five-course Italian meal, created by Chef Santi.

Owner Lou Giovannatti introduced Ed and me announcing that Vineyard {511} was the the first California winery to be included in the series of wine dinners they've held over the years. Their wine dinners have previously featured only Italian wines.


We showed a short video, which told the story of Vineyard {511}, after which Ed and I introduced the wines that would be paired before and with each course.


We were so happy that Vineyard {511} Southern California wine club members Kevin Covert and his wife Stephaniie


and Bob Bernstein and his wife Carol


were able to join us. A great night was had by all.
