Wine Dinner with Fenocchio

Wine Dinner with Fenocchio

Thursday, November 1st - 6:30pm

Join us and Claudio Fenocchio this upcoming Thursday and taste some of the best cru Baroli out there including Bussia, Villero and Castellero.

MENU HERE

~

It is no secret that we are one of Giacomo Fenocchio's biggest fans. 

Claudio is not only one of the greatest Piemontese wine makers today but he is a very charismatic and welcoming soul.

Five generations of Fenocchios have been producing wine from their land in Monforte d’Alba since 1894. Claudio is a master at crafting classic Baroli that express the true essence of the Nebbiolo grape. 

With prices that frankly do not come close to approximating the astronomical quality of the wines, it’s obvious that Fenocchio wines should be on all Barolo lovers radar.

And what better way to showcase Fenocchios wines than to pair them with Alba white truffles. Our menu will have the option of adding the prized "tartufi bianchi" to Donato's exquisite Piemontese cuisine.

Wine Dinner with Benanti Winery

Wednesday, August 29th

Join us in welcoming Benanti Winery

In the late 1980s the Benanti family set out to revolutionize winemaking in the soils of Etna in Sicily and became leaders in the revitalization of this very special region. 

There are few wine making regions as exciting as those of the volcanic slopes of the very active volcano, Mount Etna. The whites have the complexity and minerality of Chablis, the reds...the power and grace of Burgundy.

We are honored to host Mr. Salvino Benanti for a Sicilian wine feast. 

We will be pouring Benanti’s current releases plus some library selections, all paired with Donato's splendid Sicilian dishes.
