This week we visit with a mom, pop and their three daughters for traditional Mexican fare in Vallejo at Los Arquitos Restaurant. Next we step into the saffron-hued dining room of San Francisco's Lavash Restaurant for classic Persian flavors. Finally, we step back to a previous episode to revisit the Italian flair found at Seven Hills Restaurant in San Francisco.

My name is Leslie Sbrocco and I'm the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine, beer, and spirits the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show. I will also share some wine, beer and spirits tips with each episode. This week I discuss: Absinthe.
Ferrari Rosé, TrentoDOC, Italy $35
A lesser-known, but incredibly high-quality area for sparklers is the Italian region dubbed TrentoDOC (pronounced TrentoDock). Ferrari has had roots in the northern Italian growing and producing region, which surrounds the city of Trentino, since the early 1900s. Today, this Pinot Noir and Chardonnay-based bubbly made in the classic method is revered among the top ranks of Italy’s sparkling wines.
