Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo Dinner - Claudio is Back!

We love the Barolo of Giacomo Fenocchio
If you don't take your allocation, it's fine, he's got importers lining up to take his wines.

Fenocchio is one of those producers whose much in demand wines we wonder if we'll still be able to get down the line.
They are the essence of old school Barolo.

Join us Wednesday for an intimate dinner with Claudio Fenocchio
We couldn't resist having him back the in the restaurant again.
Donato and Antonio went all out on the Piemontese tasting menu.
