Planning to be in Southern California this weekend? Then you shouldn’t miss the new event organized by Learn About Wine, the California-based organization dedicated to raise awareness on wine culture through tasting events, oenology workshops and other initiatives.

Learn About Wine

Academia Barilla has already joined Learn About Wine (LAW) in several gourmet occasions, and Academia Barilla Italian Culinary Specialist Francesco Zimone is already a “resident guest” at LAW events.

A couple of weeks ago Francesco Zimone hosted a gourmet food tasting demo at another LAW event at HD Buttercup, the hip Los Angeles furniture mall, where this picture has been taken.
