Lago is proud to bring to Cleveland the inaugural International Wine Weekend. To kick off the weekend, we have prepared an evening to remember. You will be invited to come and mingle with wine makers, master sommeliers, and wine experts. The evening will be a cocktail party with six stations hosting food from Lago, our new Japanese Concept, and local cheese maker Old Brooklyn Cheese Company. All paired with two carefully selected wines to pair with each offering by Master Sommelier Larry O’Brien with Jackson Family Wines.

We cannot think of a better way to start off the weekend, than to drink wine and converse with some of the top folks in the wine industry.
