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.

These two wineries are very special to me not only because of my friendships with the winemakers, but also because professionally, these are two of the
most influential producers in the wine industry today.

Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman lead a new class of young American winemakers. They make wine that captures a moment in time, from a specific region or style; experiencing these wines is always a delight and always a lot of fun.

Meet the Winemaker, John Lockwood of Enfield Wine Co. at 8th & English

MEET THE WINEMAKER

JOHN LOCKWOOD of ENFIELD WINE CO.

ENFIELD WINE CO. is part of the new wave of winemakers in California that has grabbed my attention. I tracked John down three years ago after reading about his wines in an article talking about the region of Fort Ross-Seaview, Sonoma. John's passion is finding incredible vineyards and making wine in a manner that has been lost in much of California for the last few years. Enfield wines are honest expressions of the varietals and the place they are grown.  Enfield Wine Co. is not a large project. John puts a ton of work into making a minuscule amount of wine and is one of the hardest working guys I have crossed paths with in a long time.

We hope you can join.

at
DESIGN LAB
1401 Elm Street, Cincinnati Ohio 45202

Tasting of 10-15 wines along with small bites from Dutch's Larder

Greg Powell, of Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant and Kevin Hart, of Hart & Cru will be pouring wine from the Kermit Lynch Portfolio. The portfolio focuses entirely on small, family-owned estates in Italy and France. The focus of the wine selections is on European wines made with integrity from humble farmers. Kevin has had a great relationship with many of the producers for years after traveling France on a Kermit Lynch wine trip for three weeks across the country. The trip was one of the most intense and most educational wine experiences of his career. This is also the trip where Kevin meet Greg and the evening will have some great stories along with the incredible wines.



"For much of the last 35 years, the wine critic Robert Parker dominated the international wine scene. Parker invented the 100-point rating system for wine, and his reviews wielded such influence over sales that vintners everywhere worked to please Parker’s palate, making oaky, intensely flavored, high-alcohol wines. Kermit Lynch, meanwhile, through his wine shop in Berkeley, Calif., and also through his nationwide distribution business, chose to sell only French and Italian wines made in the unadulterated, old-school traditional style aimed at accentuating terroir — each vineyard’s unique combination of weather, soil and geography."
