Tavola Auction: Killer B’s Wine Class and Dinner

by Charlottesville29


Here is your chance to experience Tavola like you never have before, while helping to feed the area’s hungry: The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions. Along with all of the other restaurants in The Charlottesville 29, Tavola has created a once-in-a-lifetime experience for whoever pledges the highest donation to The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Thanks to the generosity of Tavola, the entire winning bid goes directly to the food bank. And, thanks to the efficiency of the food bank, each dollar donated creates four meals for the area’s hungry.

The Tavola signature experience for The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions:

Killer B’s Wine Class and Dinner

A longtime winner of Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence, Tavola presents a very special wine and food experience in celebration of the three “B’s” of Italian wine: Barbaresco, Barolo and Brunello. Tavola wine director Priscilla Curley, a certified sommelier who also owns The Wine Guild, will lead the auction winner and five guests through an exploration of Italy’s three most revered wines. Guests will learn about the wines and the regions surrounding them, while tasting extraordinary, world-class examples of each.

To accompany the wines, Chef Dylan Allwood will let loose for a spectacular six-course dinner in Tavola’s private dining room. In addition, Tavola’s award winning bar managers, Steve Yang and Rebecca Edwards, will create a signature cocktail just for the group.

Finally, to complete the theme of Italian “B’s”, The Elysium Honey Co. will provide a variety of their Italian expressions, for use in preparing the dinner. After the meal, every guest will take home an Elysium honey sampler gift set.

Note: The auction winner will schedule their experience on a weekday that is mutually convenient for Tavola.
