A Sit-Down Tasting
Hosted by: Robin Kelley O'Connor


Barolo, as all aficionados know, is often split into two camps: modern and traditional. Most Barolo lovers recognize that these distinctions have to do with how the winemakers make their wines, what protocols they follow, and whether they use botti or barrique. But while a vague idea of what these words mean in technical terms, the real knowledge comes not on the page, but in the glass. Join us for a special sit-down tasting, accompanied by meats and cheeses, and learn as accompanied by cured Italian meats and a selection of the Chef’s hand picked artisanal cheeses, and learn as Robin Kelley O’Connor, Certified Wine Educator and resident expert, leads you through a spectrum of Barolo, traditional to modern, while explaining the connection between the two schools of Barolo making and the wine in the glass. From the traditional side, we'll be pouring Rinaldi, Mascarello, Seghesio and Scarzello; from the modern, we'll be pouring Aldo Conterno, Sandrone, and Clerico. Taste wines from seven different producers, learn how winemakers' choices affect their wines, and get real "mouth-on" experience in understanding the great modern/traditional schism. Knowledge is power, but in this case, knowledge is also incredibly delicious.
