Mitchell’s Fish Market in Winter Park has been on my “someday list”- you know those places you say you want to go to someday but never find the time go? – so when I was invited to cover their #ItalyUncorked Wine Dinner, on behalf of CitySurfing Orlando, I jumped at the chance.

Our tour guide for this journey, Mitchell’s Fish Market General Manager George Grigor, introduced each dish and told us about its preparation and ingredients, making sure that any food allergies were addressed. The question “anyone allergic to bacon?” was met with a collective gasp through the room! The wines were expertly presented by E&J Gallo Winery Field Marketing Manager, Daniel Rowland, who also provided a beautiful slide show of winery landscapes which transported us on our imaginary travels around Italy.
