Truffle & Barolo Wine Dinner
“White truffles have an extremely unique aroma that will fill a room. They smell of fresh soil and fall rain, and the aroma deceptively conceals their complex yet delicious flavor. They are sublime.” says Chef Nick Strawhecker.

|Special Guest, Advanced Sommelier Mark Yaeger|
Mark Yaeger is the General Manager of Giuliana Imports based in Boulder, Colorado. Born and raised in Rochester, NY, Mark got his start in the wine industry at the Little Nell in Aspen, CO. From international restaurant consulting in Central Asia, opening restaurants in Denver and Boulder, to directing the beverage program for the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, Mark has lived a true worldly experience in the hospitality industry.
Mark had the opportunity in 2016 to travel to Italy with Giuliana Imports and visit some of Giuliana’s producers and fell in love with the people, the culture and the wine. It was only fitting that one day he would be able to represent those families that inspired his passion for Italy and other wines from around the world. As an Advanced Sommelier (CMS), he is always thrilled to share his experiences, stories and knowledge about Giuliana’s producers and the world of wine, with guests and enthusiasts whenever he gets the chance.
