On February 9, Grassroots President Harry Root teamed up with Mike Lata and the team from FIG to prepare a dinner for the lucky winners at last year’s Spoleto Auction. This was the fifth year that Spoleto auctioned off Harry and Mike. All together, this package has raised more than $40,000 for Spoleto. Naturally, Mike’s food was awesome. The wines were great as well- highlighted by a 1995 Vouvray from Domaine du Viking. Mike’s classic French menu steered the selections to some of our favorite wines primarily from the Loire Valley.
