Wine Tasting

Sip your way through Italy!

Nothing pairs better with Italian food than wine, which is why Festa is excited to once again offer wine tastings featuring the most famous and sought-after wines from around the world. This year, we’ll be offering specialty wines from LoDuca Brothers, Inc. and Corvina Wine Company.


Wines by LoDuca

Enjoy the bold and hearty flavors of Italian wine courtesy of LoDuca Brothers. LoDuca is excited to welcome famous Italian oenologyist winemaker Regolo Medici to its LoDuca Wine Bar as a featured lecturer. Medici will explore the process of making his special blend of Lambrusco wine, which is imported and sold throughout the U.S. by LoDuca – and available at Festa Italiana! LoDuca will have two locations at Festa Italiana – one along the northern lagoon lakefront and another outside the Cucina Showcase.
