BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — Renowned Southwest Florida restaurant Angelina's is making a change to their monthly wine dinner.

Due to the lock down, they say the tasting is going from in-house to now in your house.

Their first virtual experience is being streamed live Friday evening on their Facebook.

They say it offers the same great taste with a fun twist.

Each paying guest gets their own wine and food tasting package from Angelina's.

"This will be fun. Also, I like the fact that they can ask questions and I can answer any they may have about the line or producers or the regions of Italy. Again, it will just be something different for all of us but will also give some smiles to our guests faces. That’s what we’re going for," said Dinah Leach, Angelina's Wine Director.

Leach is hosting the virtual tasting on Facebook live at 5:30 on Friday.

She says the tasting package is $75 and includes three Italian wines from Angelina's 30-foot wine tower.

It also comes paired with their signature antipasti platter.

Guests can have the kit delivered, or they can pick it up curbside at Angelina's in Bonita Springs.
