Olive Garden Wine Tasting Event Giveaway Ends 10/5 CLOSED!!!

Like many other Olive Garden Restaurants around the country, the local Olive Garden here in Amarillo, TX, is hosting a series of complimentary wine tasting events for guests on 10/5, 10/6, 10/12 and 10/13 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. in honor of the Italian farmhouse-inspired interior design refresh. Led by Olive Garden’s Wine Specialists, these events will further educate guests on Italian wines including their origin, body style, aroma, flavor/finish and food pairings. The wines featured are from around Italy and will be paired with some of Olive Garden’s delicious food. During the wine tasting events, guests will get a chance to experience the restaurant’s interior design refresh, inspired by the timeless warmth of farmhouses in Tuscany, Italy. Although design changes differ from restaurant-to-restaurant, some interior updates include new décor, tables, chairs and booths that emanate the warm, rustic tones of a Tuscan Farmhouse. So if you are in Amarillo and would like to join me at this event I will be at the local Olive Garden on October 5. I am not one to pass up good food paired with a variety of great wines. My kind of event! If you do not live in Amarillo you can check and see if your local Olive Garden will be hosting this event as well! I have been given one $25 gift card to give to one of my lucky readers!! So, hopefully if you win you can join me for some great food and wine!!!
