Biaggi's Wine Dinners

In Maple Grove Minnesota they have an outstanding Italian restaurant called Biaggi's. I've had many an excellent dinner at Biaggi's in Maple Grove and in addition to the fine food comes an excellent wine list that will leave you there most of the night trying various wines. Adding to this is their recent Wine dinners where wines from a part of the world are brought in and paired with a five course meal prepared by the most excellent Biaggi's chef Troy Tomlinson. I attended the first Biaggi's wine dinner and was greeted by Jamie the ever pleasant host (possibly manager?) of the Maple Grove Biaggi's. I took my parents to Biaggi's for this wine dinner as a fathers day present. We had an excellent time feasting on Scallops, Lamb Chops, Cheeses and a fine pear tart for desert. The wines were all spectacular and those you would not find at a typical liquor store. The price was about $75 per guest and was a good value considering the fine food, and excellent wine served as well as the fine presentation from Biaggi's cheff Troy Tomlinson. Going forward Biaggi's of Maple Grove expects to host more wine dinners and take us around Italy tasting fine wine and food.
