There is another tasting and cooking event Saturday, June 20th, 2-5pm, Whole Foods Market at The District in Henderson (100 S Green Valley Pkwy).

Consumers will have the unique opportunity to spend time with this legendary restaurant family while sampling wine from its just released signature label. Along with the winemakers, Rao’s Sommelier, Krista Rediske, will also be on hand to answer questions, discuss tasting notes and suggest food pairings for these wines. Those in attendance will also be able to sample signature dishes prepared by Rao’s Executive Chef, Carla Pellegrino, and learn a few of her kitchen secrets.

Six lucky customers at each event will walk away with an autographed copy of a Rao’s family cookbook (winners must be present to claim prize). This event is free of charge and those sampling wine must be able to prove they are 21 or older.
