Wednesday Wine Flights at Due Lire

Three Themed Varietals Offered Each Week in October

Wednesday, October 5, 12, 19 and 26
5-10 p.m.

Flights $12

Due Lire Vino & Cucina, the charming neighborhood Italian restaurant located in Lincoln Square, will continue its month-long, wine flight fete into October. Every Wednesday, starting October 5, Due Lire will offer one specialty flight of wine for $12 (three pours of 2.5 ounces of wine). The schedule is outlined below.

All of the wines have been carefully hand-selected by boisterous proprietor Massimo Di Vuolo to perfectly pair with Chef Kevin Abshire’s authentic and creative Italian cuisine. For each themed day, Massimo has selected a trio of wines that are typically not available by the glass pour. Chef Abshire’s full dinner menu will be available to pair with the wines.
