UD alum returns to old stompin’ grounds to host kick-ass wine dinner

Among the MANY highlights on this week’s amazing wine-tastings list is a 5-course wine dinner at 6:30 p.m. this Tuesday, Aug. 15 at Carvers Steaks & Chops, featuring the one, the only, Bill Whiting, director of education at Castello Banfi.

Bill is from New York City and lives there now, but more importantly, he is a Flyer — he went to school at the University of Dayton, so we’ve claimed him as our adopted son. UD’s Tom Columbus wrote an AMAZING story on Bill and his family for a university publication — it’s worth checking out. And the menu for the dinner, which you’ll find below along wiht other details, is off the damn CHARTS. Reservations are required and can be made by calling Carvers at 937-433-7099.

And a mighty tip o’ the cap to the Dayton-based wine listserv that compiles this list and allows us to copy and paste it here for your viewing pleasure! Read, attend, enjoy!
