An Evening in Piemonte featuring Barbara Sandrone

September 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


What a rare (and unexpected) treat to have our good friend Barbara Sandrone in town.  Barbara, with help from brother Luca and mama Mariucchia, has taken over the reins of the seminal cantina her father Luciano started near the town of Barolo a half-century ago.  She has done nothing but enhance the prestige of this ultra-important property by creating a beautiful new cellar, adding several top quality vineyards to the estate, and doubling down on the winery’s relentless commitment to quality.  Join us as Barbara showcases a great selection of her wines, including, of course, some treasures from our own cellar, alongside a menu created for the occasion by Chef Peter Chastain.

6:30 Reception with Barbara, 7:00 Dinner

$138 per diner plus tax and gratuity
