Time: 1 to 5 pm

The wine of kings and the king of wines: Barolo.

We are going to taste forty of them.  Does more need to be said?
This event will showcase some of the greatest producers in Barolo, Barbaresco and all of Piemonte.   It allows you to explore (at a friendly $30 tasting price) the complex issues of wine production, environment and climate that go into making some of Italy’s greatest wines.

But we won’t stop there.  We will also sample other varietals from these regions: Dolcetto, Barbera, Arneis, Gavi, blends, etc.  For the novice Italian drinker, this tasting offers an exceptional entree to Italy’s grandest wines.  For the connoisseur, it’s an unprecedented opportunity to pick your favorites.

Mark your calendars – this is a tasting not to miss.
