Wanted: Wine news

Wichita loves its wine. So much so that I’m in the planning stages of adding a wine feature to this blog. (Let me know if you have any ideas.)

In the meantime, there’s a wine tasting coming up this week.

Carrabba’s at 3409 N. Rock Road, which puts on monthly wine samplings, will offer the June installment at  6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the restaurant. It will feature samples of five wines paired with food, and proprietor Joe Parten is planning a sneak preview of some menu items he plans to roll out in July, including Sicilian ribs, chicken speidini and mixed berry crostata. It’s $35 and will be limited to the first 50 people who RSVP at 316-315-0777.

Know of any other wine tastings/dinners/events? Send them my way.
