|Sussman leads the group in tasting Arboreus, a macerated white wine, paired with fried zucchini flowers.|
The five course meal was lavish, and the flowing wines were carefully paired with each dish. He taught the group about Umbrian wine culture, as he poured a Paolo Bea vintage into each glass.

The atmosphere around the table all evening was jovial. No better way to end the day than to eat, drink and be merry! A big thank you to Zachary Sussman for sharing his passion and knowledge with us.
|We experienced Umbrian viniculture by tasting different wines of the same vintner, Paolo Bea, who produces many traditional varieties on his Montefalco estate.|
