PINOT, BURGERS, BRATS... & A PARK

Seriously, What's not to love about this event!

HirschVineyards_ArvrilBehl.jpeg

3CDC and HART & CRU have teamed up to bring this event to one of our favorite public spaces in the city: THE PORCH at WASHINGTON PARK (which just went through a massive upgrade to cover the platform so the rain can't stop us now!).

We'll be pouring HIRSCH VINEYARDS Pinot Noir, one of the top Pinot Noirs in the world, by the glass or flight. (Oh yeah!) And we'll include some of their rare, highly-allocated wines. Hirsch Vineyards is truly one of the pioneers challenging the expression of Pinot Noir from the New World.

Cincinnati's AVRIL BLEH MEATS will be on site grilling their famous burgers and brats. They have been doing this for 125 years so I think they have it down and have a following. For the bread fanatics: Allez Bakery is making the buns for the night. How could this not be delicious?

STARTS 5:30 PM WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26TH, UNTIL 8:30

FOLLOWED BY SUMMER CINEMA ON THE LAWN - SPIDER-MAN

The Movie starts at 9pm, bring the kids and some lawn chairs.

A TASTE of THE NEW SPANISH WINE SCENE : MITA'S CINCINNATI

A TASTE of THE NEW SPANISH WINE SCENE : MITA’S CINCINNATI

A transformation is taking place in Spanish wine. In a setting known for a heavy hand in the cellar and the overpowering impact of oak, a new movement, propelled by progressive winemakers, represents another path. One showcasing limited winemaking intervention and rooted in respect for the land and local, ancient varieties.

Call it new, but this process is actually old school. More commonplace in France, Italy, and even parts of the US, it’s fantastic to see this philosophy emphasized in Spain as well. And it’s not just at the wineries. Wines in this small production style are popping up as top picks in all the top wine bars and restaurants in Barcelona, Madrid, San Sebastian and Valencia.

…And now Cincinnati, where we are excited to share some of these incredible bottles with the food and wine lovers in our fair city.

Hosted by HART & CRU and wineCRAFT

RESERVE A TABLE THROUGH EMAIL LINK ABOVE OR CALL THE RESTAURANT AT (513) 421-6482 and let the reservationist know you are interested in the New spainish wine tasting.


THURSDAY, MAY 9th

MITA’S RESTAURANT

Come enjoy these incredible wines in a multitude of ways.

By the Glass and Bottle options will be available at different price points: for casual or indulgent drinking alongside the full Mita's menu.

6 Course Tasting Menu with pairings curated by Chef Salazar and Sommeliers Chip Roig and Kevin Hart.

CSO Pre-Concert Wine Tasting: Ravel + Debussy - Colors of Spain

Music Hall has been restored to glory and with that comes new spaces for us to indulge in great juice!

This season before Series 3 Saturday Subscription concerts, I am thrilled to partner with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra to share some of my favorite wines at Music Hall. Over the season, Hart & Cru will host six pre-concert wine tastings in Corbett Tower.

This is a really unique experience to enjoy amazing wine in an iconic place before a fantastic night of music. Since each performance is unique, I am hand-selecting wines that reflect the program’s themes—whether region, composer or piece (pours, price and flight availability will vary by concert). Many bottles I am bringing are not often seen in Cincinnati, so these evenings will be a rare chance to taste. 

Wine will flow in Corbett Tower from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. No reservations are required. I hope to see you for a glass or two.

REFERENCE POINT PRODUCER

ALAIN GRAILLOT

with Special Guest Antoine Graillot


THURSDAY JANUARY 31st

5 COURSES, 7 WINES

open reservation times throughout the evening

( details on pricing and table times on the website )

On January 31st we are honored to host Alain’s son, Antoine Graillot, for an exclusive evening of allocated wines paired with a five course dinner. Alongside guest sommelier Kevin Hart, Antoine will pour wines from his family’s estate—including Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph, Maxime Graillot and Domaine de Fa.

From a moderate 21 hectares in the Crozes-Hermitage AOC, Alain Graillot and his family have coaxed the vines and gained international acclaim with exuberant, robust and complex Syrah-based wines. In a mere 20 years, Graillot has established a reputation as one of the most talented producers not only in the Rhône Valley, but in all of France. The family recently acquired vines north of the Rhone in and around Fleurie Beaujolais and we are excited to be sharing this new property during the dinner. Each new release is allocated down to the bottle.


LIMITED RESERVATIONS AVAILABLE


In France’s Northern Rhone Valley, there are few names as revered as Graillot. It was in 1985 that the now legendary Alain Graillot, who after working with the venerable Jacques Seysses at Domaine Dujac, came back to his home in Crozes-Hermitage to start his own domaine. With each passing year his devotion to the art of making hauntingly delicious Syrah from his organically farmed, stone-laden vineyards, has been rewarded with an ever growing and highly dedicated following around the world. So fervent is the fandom that each new release is now allocated down to the bottle. And so it would seem a daunting task for the child of such a luminary to follow in the footsteps of such a giant. Luckily for those who appreciate the art of viniculture, Alain’s sons Maxime & Antoine Graillot and the Domaine Equis and Domaine de fa not only continues the legacy started by his father, he also blazes his own trail in winemaking excellence.

Drop by the bar or reserve a table to taste through four of Terre Nere’s standouts: Etna Bianco, San Leonardo Rosso, Guardiolo Rosso and Prephylloxera Rosso. This is a rare opportunity to taste some of the Estate’s prized single vineyards (Contradas).

Enjoy your cozy date night flight with handmade pasta, or gather the group for wine and a bistecca to share. A feast under the candlelight is sure to warm the belly and the soul.

Schmelzer, who is an American and all-around fascinating guy, began farming biodynamically at Monte Bernardi in Chianti Classico in 2005.

Produced from certified organic grapes sourced throughout Italy, “Italia Ti Amo” is the universal, fun-loving table wine.

Rare, Extraordinary Tasting of Bruno Giacosa Wines at Sotto

H&C_Sotto_Giacosa.jpg

We had a crazy idea to open some iconic wines and let me tell some stories around why BRUNO GIACOSA is truly among the “Greatest of all Times Producers.” This tasting will be a tribute to a legend in the wine world who passed at the age of 88 in January.Bruno left a mark on the wine world, both through many faithful lovers of his wines and his wine philosophy. Known as the maker of the most traded and sought-after wines of Barolo and Barbaresco, his reputation is almost as noteworthy as his humility.

This October 3, join me and a lucky few in tasting through his legendary wines alongside an exclusive menu from Sotto Chef Danny Combs. With such limited production—and even more limited allocation to Ohio—I am honored to personally present Giacosa wines for this one night only and share stories of my travels and love for the region.

This is a rare opportunity that I had to take advantage of to create a special night to open these bottles. It's not every day you have the opportunity taste all of these wines together.

I will pour Giacosa sparkling wines at 6:30pm, with a feast of 7 rustic Italian courses and 7 wines to follow at 7:00pm. Due to the collectors' level of these premium wines, we are hosting dinner for $230 a person for food & wine ($290 includes tax & grat).

Please email or call if you would like a seat. A limited number of bottles will be available for home cellars. You do not want to miss these wines.

Nada Fiorenzo is hands-down one of the best producers in Barbaresco. While Barolo gets most of the spotlight, I think Barbaresco is equally deserving.

When I traveled to Piemonte many times over the last 10 years., I was wowed by Nada Fiorenzo’s juice but even more so by the humility and passion of the tight-knit family who tends the vines. Danilo, a former sommelier and son of founder Bruno, combines his pedigree with such energy and character that you are immediately immersed in his stories.

I hope you’ll join me in giving Danilo a warm welcome to Cincinnati (his first time!) at A Tavola in Madeira. He will roam the floor to share about the wines as we pour his favorites in a flight of three, plus selections by the glass. Featured tagliatelle and the full A Tavola menu will be available to enjoy as you sip.

Want more details on Nada Fiorenzo? Keep scrolling for our story on this outstanding winemaking family.

March 7 // 5pm-9pm

Savor New California wines so incredible even a French existentialist would approve.

On March 7 from 5pm-9pm at Sartre, join me and top sommeliers from around the city as we pour 25 amazing New California wines produced in the style of the Old World masters.
