Top Canadian chef offers Venetian wine dinner Feb. 21 in Niagara Falls, Ont.

By Andrew Z. Galarneau

If you’re looking for a little midwinter splurge, there’s a Venice-inspired dinner across the border on Feb. 21, headlined by Chef Massimo Capra.

Held at the Sheraton at the Falls, dinner with wine pairings is $125 per person; for $199 a person they’ll throw in a room. Those prices do not include tax or tip.

“The event will feature traditional Venetian cuisine flavours integrated with the Niagara Region's finest ingredients as well as wine pairings from Marchesi Armando Fumanelli himself who will be presenting the prestigious wines that his family has been producing since 1470,” a press release said. “Located north of Verona, the winery is known for the ageing of the classical Valpolicella wines.”
