How to select wines for a dinner with friends


Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg  Extra Dry
I didn’t use to think much about the selection of wines when I invited my friends over for dinner, until a few weeks ago a friend of mine from New York told me he still remembered a dinner we had in Bologna (Italy) almost two years ago.
