On a summer evening in July, Lorenzo’s de Mesilla hosted an Osso Bucco wine dinner in their brand new Palermo Room. The beautifully decorated room, with twinkling lights and centerpieces of sunflowers and grapes, transported guests from the hot desert to the cool veranda of an Italian villa. Lorenzo himself graciously welcomed the guests before handing it over to in-house sommelier, Clint Titone. As each course was served, Clint presented information on the wine pairings, discussing everything from the region it was grown in to a history of the vineyard. The highlight of the superb 5-course dinner was the entrée of Milanese veal with wild mushroom saffron orzo, roasted tomatoes, baked fennel and squash florettes. Lorenzo’s de Mesilla offers several wine dinner events throughout the year. The events are usually sold out, so contact Peggy Smith at 575-496-6329 to reserve tickets. ///
