Wally's Family Affair at Drago's


Monday Oct 20th 2008


Drago Ristorante


The world may be going corporate, but on Monday, October 20th, 2008 the focus at Drago in Santa Monica will be on family! Wally's, Drago and Seghesio are each Family Owned businesses and we happily join forces to present a casual night of showcasing terrific wines and great food.

Seghesio Family Winery's General Manager Pete Seghesio will be accompanied by his mother
Rachel Ann, the matriarch of the Seghesio clan. Founded in 1895, Seghesio's well earned fame for producing classic wines from old vines is certainly come by honestly. In addition to presenting an interesting cross section of their latest wines, the Seghesio's legendary homemade sausage also appears on the wonderful menu that Chef Celestino Drago has created for this special occasion.
