Coming soon: Wine tasting at il Vecchio

Pacific Grove hotspot il Vecchio is introducing some new selections to their wine list, many with very limited production and not available on the Monterey Peninsula.

To celebrate, they’re hosting a wine tasting next week. Thursday June 14 and Friday June 15, receive two complimentary glasses from their new additions with purchase of dinner.

Their wine list features a good selection of wines from Italy and California, and most are pretty affordable. So stop by and grab a glass with chef Stefan Shatto’s rustic Italian fare.
