Wine Dinner

Wine Dinner with Silvano Brescianini of Barone Pizzini and Pievalta

Tuesday, May 16, 2017  |  6:30PM
$185  |  Limited to 18 guests

Please join us for a dinner with Silvano Brescianini, winemaker and director at Barone Pizzini in Franciacorta and Pievalta in Le Marche. Barone Pizzini dates back to 1870 and was the first producer in Franciacorta to practice organic farming. Franciacorta is considered a young region with its commercial origins starting in the 1960s. However, its Italian sparkling wine production dates back to the 16th century, with Barone Pizzini being one of the best representations from this region. Pievalta is located in the heart of the Castelli di Jesi. It’s a land renowned for its small, walled medieval villages and for the production of wines made from Verdicchio grapes. Pievalta produces all of their wine biodynamically, allowing the grape variety and terroir to freely express themselves. The wine pairing will highlight five different Franciacorta crus and two Pievalta wines, including their San Paolo Cru – one of the best subzones in Castelli di Jesi. Menu will feature dishes from both the Franciacorta and Marche regions.
